What is Chronocarto?

Since 2009, AOrOc seeks to produce online maps. With the service provider Geocarta, we have developed a GIS Web application: Chronocarto, with the free software Gcserver on a Linux operating system. This application will allow us to meet our needs without being dependent upon a private operator to access our online data. Several interfaces are now available:

1- A viewer for online georeferenced maps, enabling a group of users to transfer documents, to work together from afar on a password-protected project. Each project can remain private or become public and may adopt the appropriate projection system.

2- Regional atlases grouping data on a various scales, from a single site or on a global basis, enabling the superposition of maps and the creation of links between points on the maps and images, as well as links to publications.

3- An Iron Age atlas : an online automatic atlas that draws data from the BaseFer, developed in Mysql in order to answer simple questions: where? When? What?

4- Depending on the question, the user is directed towards thematic maps published by researchers within the Chronocarto framework. These maps must be considered as true publications.

5- These documents will be associated with metadata and each project will be enhanced with a “data paper” explaining its purposes and main results. The authors’ as well as the institutional and financial partners’ logos will be clearly identified.

Test chronocarto on your own data

A simplified version allows the Internet user to visualize(display) its data from a simple spreadsheet on the proposed funds(collections) of cards(maps) and by means of Archéolocalis.
