Abstract The geo-archaeological approach to the formation of urban strata has to deal with a high density and diversity of processes and deposits. The recording system used is generally very specific: pedologic registering forms, 3D geo-localization, etc. The records are difficult to quantify and to integrate into more common stratigraphic systems. Sometimes they are even considered useless or hardly understandable. The case study described here deals with micromorphological, stratigraphical and 3D organization of dark earth layers from French preventive excavations. It combines the use of a laser tachaeometer, a petrographic microscope, a spreadsheet and a GIS. The observations are analyzed by statistical and spatial methods. The results and the major difficulties are explained here. The system is focused only on a few elements that seem to be essential, because they help to read, register, analyze, interpret and communicate data.
