The Tiber Valley Project : the database and geographical information system.

Witcher, R. E. and Kay, S. (2008) 'The Tiber Valley Project : the database and geographical information system.', in Mercator placidissimus : the Tiber Valley in antiquity : new research in the upper and middle river valley. Rome: Quasar, pp. 417-429. Quaderni di Eutopia. (8).


This short contribution outlines the basic information technology at the heart of the Tiber valley project; the purpose of this article is to introduce the principles of the database and GIS and the methodologies followed. More detailed discussion of specific topics and results will be presented elsewhere (for instance, see Kay - Witcher 2005). The power of these technologies to integrate, visualise and analyse the wealth of archaeological data from the middle Tiber valley can be observed in many of the other papers in the present volume. Questo breve contributo descrive la tecnologia informatica di base utilizzata nel Tiber valley project; lo scopo di questo articolo è quello di fornire un’introduzione ai principi del database e del GIS e alle metodologie applicate. Una discussione più dettagliata delle caratteristiche specifiche e dei risultati sarà presentata altrove (si veda Kay - Witcher 2005). La capacità da parte di tali tecnologie di integrare, visualizzare ed analizzare la ricchezza dei dati archeologici restituiti dalla media valle del Tevere può essere verificata in numerosi contributi pubblicati in questo volume.
