The Typological Database System (TDS), which provides integrated access to a dozen independently created typological databases, was launched in 2007. Due to the pace of change in web technologies, the original software has for some time been edging toward obsolescence. CLARIN-NL granted funding to the TDS Curator project to migrate this valuable resource to a more durable platform, archiving the data and converting its interface to a true web service architecture that can continue to provide interactive access to the data. This chapter describes the architecture of the new system, and the Integrated Data and Documentation Format (IDDF) on which it is based.
