The aim of the Spatial Heritage& Archaeological Research Environment I.T (SHARE IT) project is to investigate spatial archaeological landscape data in Ireland and to develop a WebGIS tool pilot for its exploration for use in further research. The key research challenges will be: assessing current levels of spatial data content and standards within the Irish archaeology sector, identifying suitable digital archiving strategies for spatial landscape data, developing and testing a suitable WebGIS for the exploration of spatial archaeological landscape data and the promotion of this data to the archaeological research community. Initially the WebGIS tool will host geophysical, aerial and LiDAR data, together with their associated interpretations.
