Abstract A procedure was developed to reconstruct the sedimentary units and to establish the position of the archaeological features and was then implemented via a database coupled with a GIS. This reconstruction requires the increase of measurements taken on the ground in a homogeneous way. It is then used to supply a 3D visualization of the sedimentary units in the relationships of archaeological operation (excavation or trial trenches), even for spot observations. This tool, which is still in an experimental phase, could be extended and validated by geomorphologists to constitute a data bank which would be useful both for the archaeologist and for the geologist.
