Chronocarto, un Web-SIG libre pour les archéologues (pas seulement…)

Abstract : Chronocarto is a web-GIS developed since 2006 for the representation of cartographic data in Archaeology. It has been designed to allow for networking among researchers, non-specialists in GIS, from the acquisition phase to the enrichment of existing on-line documents. The platform is hosted on the Huma-Num TGIR and supports the concept of projects associated with a community of users whose rights can be modulated by an administrator. The concept of copyright has been introduced both at the data level and for the maps. Each project consists of a number of maps possibly grouped in different folders. The data can be spatial (georeferenced image files, vector files but also database or simple spreadsheet) or non-spatial (word processing files, images, videos, Internet links). Archiving is daily and incremental. The status of projects may change: 'in project', 'in progress', 'completed', 'publishable online (public)' and 'archived' (not visible but stored for a minimum of 30 years). Currently, the platform manages over a hundred projects and several thousand maps. Some of the maps can be associated with thematic Atlas thanks to key words. The Atlas allows to query databases with simple questions like Where, When? What?. The results of the query are in the form of distribution maps. Chronocarto continues to be developed internally and its access is free.
