Abstract This study deals with the impact of the Geographical Information Systems (GIS) on the French institutions for archaeological research. The practices of GIS follow a global evolution. With the dematerialization of the data and the systems, we are actually in a process which proposes new modes of data management and new working processes. On the occasion of a PhD research at the University of Paris Ouest-Nanterre, we conducted an examination of projects drawn from various contexts of French archaeology: archaeological services of regions with a measure of autonomy, national institute of preventive archaeological research (Inrap), Ministry of Cultural Heritage, University and institutes of research. It gave us the opportunity to analyze the peculiarities and durability of the practices connected to GIS. This double initiative shows us the relevance of questioning the format techniques and the methods by which their tools are implemented, in order to take into account the specificities of the technology and the differences in rationalities and perceptions of the archaeologists. It highlights the strategic aspect of mutualization and sharing of equipment, data and skills.
