The prospect of digitization of Polish Archaeological Record on an example of materials from the turn of Bronze and Iron Age from the area of Pomeranian Voivodeship (Northern Poland)
Languages of publication
Polish Archaeological Record (AZP) is a unique research program initiated by Polish archaeologists in the second half of 1970s. The aim of this project is to mark on unitary maps (AZP sheets) all archaeological sites that were recorded during surface surveys along with sites known from the archives. The main purpose of this paper is to focus on perspective of future digitalization of AZP and technical issues linked with the problem. Therefore, a process of creation of digital sample dataset containing materials from the Late Bronze Age and Early Iron Age from selected AZP sheets from Pomeranian Voivodeship will be presented, together with brief depiction of past and present attempts in introducing GIS into AZP archives. This case will be also described on the background of national records of other European countries and their level of digitization.
