Project Summary

AbstractThe excavations of the German Archaeological Institute on Elephantine Island at the southern border of Egypt aims to fully explore the settlement's history from Prehistory to the Islamic era. The data collected during the past decades of research are widespread and heterogeneous and a lot of effort is spent to collect a set of common information on the results to enable future analysis on a consistent basis.

As part of this process, all published plans of the project are under way of digitisation i.e. converted into digital vector-format. Meanwhile, careful consideration has been put on questions of archiving and dissemination of the data. One basic demand is to provide central access to and the possibility of manipulating the graphical information, including the facility to download data-sets for individual mapping (e.g. plans for publication).

Technical StuffThe webclient is based on MapFish which itself is based on ExtJS and OpenLayers. At the moment there are two new widgets: "Printing" and "Query".

The printing widget lets you create a frame (that represents the pdf-output) on the map. You can choose the size, the orientation and the scale of the printed map. The frame is dragable on the map.

With the query widget it is possible to query some data, that is served by a wfs-request.
