Users’ communities’ roles

The users’ communities have been created during the steering committee’s session on the 26th of September 2017. Their roles are the followings:

  • Act of the evolution of ArkeoGIS ontologies for the community or all users in collaboration with the general repositories.
  • Animating the community. For instance, proposing a selective mailing list to inform users when a new dataset is integrated.
  • Bring call for projects, colloquies or needed improvements to the steering committee’s attention.
  • Deciding to give, or not, ArkeoGIS ID to new potential users.

ArkeoGIS’ existing users’ communities

Find share ArkeoGIS users world wide.

Ask questions, find answers and get in touch with ArkeoGIS’ users’ communities from the whole world. To achieve this goal, the following users’ communities have been created. Each of them is still recruiting new members.

    • TEO : C. Duvette (contact UMR)
    • Grèce & Rome : D. Lefèvre (contact UMR), Q. Drillat
    • Préhistoire : C. Jeunesse (contact UMR), S. Diemer
    • AMER : L. Bernard (contact UMR), C. Féliu.
  • Communities outside the UMR7044. Each of them needs an addressee towards the UMR7044 and the steering committee.
    • Paléoenvironnement : C. Morel, n XXX (contact UMR)
    • Espagne : E. Hiriart, L. Bernard (contact UMR)

Participatory patronage

Every year, ArkeoGIS is developing new multidisciplinary projects which couldn’t exist without patronage and the support of our patrons. Whether you are an individual or a company, you can become of ArkeoGIS’ patrons and contribute to scientific research, help share and highlight environmental and archaeological data. Every donation is deductible from your taxes and make you a member of the recognition program of the University of Strasbourg’s foundation.

Below, you can find the list of the projects chosen by the steering committee and the user’s communities. If you have any question or suggestion, please feel free to contact us using this form.

  • Mapping: Connexion to external mapping servers. They allow users to add background maps (roman roads, soil maps, geological maps, etc.) to their queries and understand their results better or differently. Done
  • Data processing:  We are continuing our work related to ” Data visualisation in archaeology based on graph approach “. Users will be able to visualize their query’s results as graphs or statistics in the new Visualization tool.
  • Mapping: Implementation of a 3D model allowing to see all the sites in their topographical position.
    • Spatial analysis: Calculation of the intervisibility between sites.
