ARCA: Creating and integrating archaeological databases

ARCA: Creating and integrating archaeological databases
ARCA: Creating and integrating archaeological databases
This article presents the process of design and creation of ARCA, an archaeological database developed within the ATLAS research group. ARCA contains information on over 2200 sites in southern Spain, including their archaeological, chronological and typological characterization, as well as their spatial location, and therefore can be seen as a powerful research tool, accessible via the Internet. Focusing on the different steps followed, and specifically on the decisions leading to the current form and state of ARCA, readers will be provided with an insight into the process of integration and reuse of published and unpublished archaeological data and the different issues faced when integrating different datasets.

Abstract

This article presents the process of design and creation of ARCA, an archaeological database developed within the ATLAS research group. ARCA contains information on over 2200 sites in southern Spain, including their archaeological, chronological and typological characterization, as well as their spatial location, and therefore can be seen as a powerful research tool, accessible via the Internet. Focusing on the different steps followed, and specifically on the decisions leading to the current form and state of ARCA, readers will be provided with an insight into the process of integration and reuse of published and unpublished archaeological data and the different issues faced when integrating different datasets.
