Members of the Arches team from the Getty Conservation Institute, World Monuments Fund, and Farallon Geographics, will be traveling to Australia in March for the 2013 Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology (CAA) conference. Two different papers on Arches will be presented, in sessions S15 (“Databases on cultural heritage and their geographic visualization”) and S33 (“Open source methods and practices in heritage and archaeology.”)

Prior to the conference we will be meeting with several Australian colleagues who are responsible for different heritage information systems, to learn from their experience and needs and to compare notes on our work.

Please contact us if you would like to catch us at CAA in Australia. We are always happy to talk about Arches with anyone who will listen!

We are very excited about the response we have received since we launched this website, and we are looking forward to sharing more information in the coming months!
