Commingled human remains are often encountered in archaeological and forensic contexts.
A bone by bone inventory—or a Specimen Level Information Management (SLIM) approach—is critical for segregating commingled human remains into discrete individuals.
This process must occur for individual identification to be possible. The Commingled Remains and Analytics (CoRA) web application, database and APIs are a global community resource
for inventorying assemblages of commingled human remains, while providing a framework of analytical methods and tools to assist in the segregation and subsequent identification of missing persons.
Documentation for the CoRA - Commingled Remains Analytics application can be found at CoRA Online Help
The Commingled Remains and Analytics (CoRA) ecosystem is the product of a partnership between the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA) and the University of Nebraska Omaha, College of Information Science and Technology (UNO IS&T).
This collaborative effort between the students and faculty of UNO IS&T and the forensic anthropology staff of DPAA, is an effort to support the global forensic community.
