Abstract


Cultural Heritage Information Management Systems (CHIMS) have been developed in order to achieve the georeference of the items in the Cultural Heritage database. Eleutherna in Crete is one of the most significant archaeological sites in Greece, with. many buildings constructed and destroyed during its long life. Hence, it is easily understandable that this vast archaeological site is complicated and difficult to understand, even by experts. In this paper the development of a Cultural Heritage Management System, called ARCHAEOsystem, is described and analyzed. The system has as geographic base a recent orthophoto of the area and for its design several parameters were taken into account. The conceptual design of the data base with the Entity-Relational (E-R) model preceded the development of this object oriented system. This E-R model is described and evaluated for its operability. After the initial experimental operation of the system, eventual practical problems will be identified and confronted. Finally, presentation of future prospects is being attempted and eventual uses of such a system are proposed.
