Originally, archeological site data was housed in 3 different location using 3 different cataloging systems. In the 1990's the University of Arizona, Arizona State Parks Department Historic Preservation Office and Northern Museum of Arizona came together to form the consortium, AZSite. Compiling the 3 disparate datasets has been a long, complicated, and ongoing task.
A GIS was created to store unique site information. An interactive map that is secured by login/password allows users to identify potential historic sites within a construction zone. The technology used to create the AZSite internet mapping has evolved from humble beginnings using ArcIMS to a full-fledged enterprise system that now uses ArcGIS Server. The system continues to be reviewed by users and enhancements are being continually developed by GIS Services.
