Subject Survey and excavations
Abstract The project that gave rise to the API ARCH’IS was created in 2008. It was motivated by a discussion on optimizing the registration and use of data searches, particularly in the context of complex, diachronic and a huge variety of structures, sometimes split into several excavation sites. While the use of conventional GIS would have seemed the most appropriate, it raised the twin issues of training and the availability of licenses. In addition, it offered no probative solution for work in ‘real time’. ARCH’IS has been developed by archaeologists to meet their own needs and interests of preservation of information. Its architecture is based on a MySQL SGBDD operated through a modular application implementing various individual languages in the world of the Internet. ARCH’IS integrated an engine map with useful features for most archaeologists, without specific training needs. Experimented on several projects of Marne-la-Vallée, the development plan of this API has now been established for many years.
