The GIS database

The collected data have been integrated in GIS database which contains both the results of our surveys and the data obtained during the past investigations, i.e. excavated buildings and fortifications. The database made in QGIS programme allows to analyse the exact acreage of the investigated areas with the landscape features and obstacles, the density of metal finds in chronological division or to create the map of a certain type of finds. The most important advantage, especially useful in such a site like Novae, is a possibility of collecting and estimating the data obtained during the long period of archaeological investigations made by several expeditions. This is a very useful tool for every archaeologist working on the site, and a valuable source of information for the future projects.
