On January 30, 2013 we launched archesproject.org, a website about the Arches project! Arches is a new, open-source, web-based, geospatial information system for cultural heritage inventory and management. Arches is purpose-built for the international cultural heritage field, and it is designed to record all types of immovable heritage, including archaeological sites, buildings and other historic structures, landscapes, and heritage ensembles or districts. Arches has been developed jointly by the Getty Conservation Institute  and World Monuments Fund.

As of today, you may access the current source code of Arches, which is available at https://bitbucket.org/arches/arches. A main launch will follow in June 2013, together with the first release that is available for the public user.

Over the coming months, we will be adding more information to this website, so please make sure to visit us again. Welcome!
