The Archaeological GIS project of the Historic Centre of Florence


The project “The Digital Map of Archeological Risks of the centre of Florence” has as its goal the creation of a tool for the prevention and detection of the archaeological risks in the historical centre of Florence. In order to create a digital map of the archaeological risks, the project will use the archeological GIS (Geographical Information System) created within a research doctorate in the University of Siena (Scampoli E., 2009, Urban archeology in Florence. Platform of GIS archaeological evidence from Roman times to the thirteenth century).
The archaeological GIS includes all the published information on the archaeological findings and some information still unpublished or partially published. The findings are located within the city and the information has been added to the database.
