Archaeological Information System


A simple gui app to simplify scanning single context plans.


CharTool is a macro tool for quantifying charcoal particles for paleoecological research applications.


Cherish is a tool that aids archaeologists and designers to represent historical, urban and archaeological structures and sites in 3D by means of image manipulation and sketching. Combine disparate data types such as photographs, illustrations, diagrams, text annotations, point cloud representation, etc, into a comprehensive 3D space, to make 3D sense of the data.

Chronological Modelling of Archaeological Data using Bayesian Statistics.


Crossbones autogenerates 3D schematic skeletons, making rapid surveying and visualisation of dense skeletal assemblages a snap.


E5 is a generalized data entry program intended for archaeologists that works with a configuration file where the data entry fields are defined


The German Archaeological Institute’s (DAI) new take on a field research documentation system. Combining features of GIS, photo management, and database management systems in a unique and integrating manner, it aims at facilitating archaeological workflows by reducing the overhead of using multiple systems. Developed in-house by the DAI’s information technology department, it targets primarily the needs of the institute’s excavations, older ones as well as those to come. Yet, due to the nature of its adjustable data model and the fact it is open source software, any interested third party is free to reuse and adjust it to their needs.


A visualization tool for paleoclimatic modeling data.


A software interface to a set of tools that process your captured image set to produce the final RTI files. The RTIBuilder download includes the Hemispherical Harmonics (HSH) fitter to create .rti files.


Enables you to view and explore Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI) files at very high resolution (Polynomial Texture Maps, Hemispherical Harmonics Map, and Multiview RTI). You can view image files stored on your local file system, and remote files through HTTP.
