MEGA-Jordan:  The National Heritage Documentation and Management System

A State-of-the-Art System for Jordan’s Archaeological Sites

MEGA-Jordan is a purpose-built geographic information system (GIS) to inventory and manage archaeology sites at a national level. It has been developed using state-of-the-art technology and requires no more than basic computer skills to enter site and site element boundaries and buffer zones; site details such as condition, threats, and other monitoring updates; and to print out detailed, up-to-date reports on Jordan’s vast number of archaeological sites. The system, in both Arabic and English, is web-based and will standardize and centralize data throughout the Kingdom.

  1. I think geographic info management system will help an unorganized system if ever the administrator decides to implement it. And if ever the administration decides to fix or upgrade a system, I hope it will be an automated one in order to keep up with the fast pace of change in the market. An automated system will bring a different and easy task within the company. WMS
