The Inari Archaeological Information System (AIS) is developed for the documentation, analysis and publication of archaeological data to reduce the time spent on paperwork and data import and export by combining all data and every step in the archaeological workflow in one software.
With the AIS all information about contexts, features, finds and more can be entered or imported directly into the system. The files and the information are then linked together, so that everything can be found easily. Our highly customizable interface gives the option to choose the displayed fields, the language and more. It also features tools like a sketchpad and an integrated QR-reader.
Field workers, site directors, conservators —so many people need the same authoritative data for smooth coordination between field an office and improved decision making all around. The Inari AIS is designed as a secure system with controlled access. Administration tools in Inari AIS include everything needed to control and manage people and content.
The Inari AIS enables the user to take advantage of all the data has to offer. With our advanced search engine and integrated GIS, you can visualize large amounts of data and convey information in a powerful way. The software makes it also possible to analyse data from more angles than before to make it easier to interpret the findings an draw the right conclusions.
The requirements for documentation are growing and take time away from the fieldwork. To reduce the time used by writing reports, it is possible to create lists or field diaries in the AIS with a click an export the documents required by the government effortlessly.
