Sweco helps archaeologists with document management
Sweco has been chosen by the Swedish National Heritage Board to further develop Intrasis, a geographical information system that is used by archaeologists both in Sweden and internationally. The contract is worth around EUR 904,000.
“The archaeologists are in urgent need of a new and modern GIS system. The current system was launched back in 2000 and needs to be updated and given expanded functionality,” says Karin Lund, Systems Specialist at the Swedish National Heritage Board.
The new version of Intrasis will manage and structure archaeological documentation and field data, and will be used both in the field and for post-processing. One new feature is that the archaeologists will only need to work in a single system. Today they use one system to enter archaeological data and another for data analysis. In addition, the system will have a simpler and faster user interface. The assignment will start in February 2012 and the launch is scheduled for the beginning of 2013.
The new version of Intrasis is based on Dotnet, C-sharp, PostGIS and ESRI ArcGIS Engine and will replace the existing version of Intrasis based on Visual Basic.
