Intrasis is a digital documentations system designed by archaeologist at the Swedish National Heritage Board. It is built on the experience from more than 600 digital excavations and has up till now been used at approx 4000 excavations. The use of Intrasis is sold as software licenses and is today in use in several countries around Europe.
Intrasis is designed to handle and structure archaeological documentation and field data. By using Intrasis, all data related to one excavation, or site, becomes easy accessible and possible to combine. This increases the possibilities of interdisciplinary research when data from e.g. osteology or paleo-ecology can be combined with the archaeological information.
During this workshop we will show the basics of Intrasis and how it is used on an archaeological excavation - from field documentation with total station or GPS via registration onto analysis and publication. Everyone with interest in the software could attend and the duration will be approx 90 minutes. Limitation of attendees will be according to the room available.
