The SITAR Project is implemented in compliance with the guidelines defined by: – the final document (Ministero dei Beni e delle Attività Culturali protocol no. MiBAC no. 6168 of 11 April 2008) of the first Joint Committee of the Ministero dei Beni e delle Attività Culturali – Università for the establishment of a Geographic Archaeological Information System for Italian cities and their territories, established by the Honourable Minister on 24 January 2007; – the Working Group for the creation of methodological tools for rescue archaeology, established by the Direttore Generale per le Antichità of the Ministero dei Beni e delle Attività Culturali on 24 December 2008; – the second Joint Committee Ministero dei Beni e delle Attività Culturali – Università for the creation of SITAN – National Geographic Archaeological Information System, established by the Hon.

The SITAR Project also uses the results of the work of the research teams established in 2009 by the Ufficio del Commissario delegato per le Aree archeologiche di Roma ed Ostia (O.P.C.M. n° 3747/2009), for the purpose of analysing and reducing the seismic risk to Rome’s archaeological and monumental heritage, as well as for the purposes of planning and implementing work to protect, restore and enhance the monumental complexes of the capital.

CED of the Soprintendenza
The SITAR WebGIS was designed and implemented by the Soprintendenza Speciale Archeologia Belle Arti e Paesaggio di Roma (formerly the Soprintendenza Speciale per il Colosseo, il Museo Nazionale Romano e l’Area Archeologica di Roma), using its own financial resources and thanks to the commitment of an internal working group and a technical-scientific service established specifically to implement the SITAR Project – Sistema Informativo Territoriale Archeologico di Roma/Geographic Archaeological Information System of Rome.
The map themes were created, implemented and published by the institutional owners of the data, the Managers and the working groups of the individual projects mentioned in the detailed list at the foot of the page.
The intellectual property rights to the data and the information correlated with each map layer, the relevant vector or raster themes and all the other information available for consultation through the webGIS belong strictly to the Organization or Institute responsible for its creation and that, through specific memorandums of understanding and exchange with the Soprintendenza Archeologica, made them available to users of SITAR and of the webGIS for purely institutional, scientific and non-commercial uses and purposes.
The map data can be freely consulted through the webGIS interface and details printed.
The use of images, map excerpts and descriptive data displayed and obtained in any form and by any means (html code, video capture – screenshots, hypertext links to the SITAR WebGIS, etc.) is permitted within the limits specifically defined in the list of map layers shown at the foot of the page, and is subject to acknowledgement of the original source:
“Map data from the WebGIS of the Sistema Informativo Territoriale Archeologico di Roma, https://archeositarproject.it/- Ministero dei Beni e delle Attività Culturali e del Turismo – Soprintendenza Speciale Archeologia Belle Arti e Paesaggio di Roma”.
The SITAR Project Working Group is responsible for the structuring and publication in the webGIS of the informational content and map layers.
The web application was developed with technological support and computer programming undertaken jointly by the Soprintendenza’s Centro Elaborazione Dati (hardware and network infrastructure) and by software development companies (analysis, design and development of the web applications).
Development of the webGIS application: Andrea De Tommasi and Daniele La Nave.
The map framework of the WebGIS SITAR application still makes reference to the Gauss-Boaga national cartographic system, East zone (except for the theme offered as WMS by the Open Street Maps – Map Quest platform, which refers to the “Pseudo-Mercator” projection system), pending the application of the Prime Ministerial Decree of 10.11.2011 on the adoption of the new National Geodetic System. Reference will be made to this mapping system that is no longer in force pursuant to the same Prime Ministerial Decree 10.11.2011(link), until all the public base maps used in the SITAR WebGIS comply with this legislation.
The technical specifications and limitations on the use and dissemination of each item of information content on the webGIS are detailed below, with reference to the levels listed in the map application legend.
Datasets of the SITAR Project Purpose. Map of the archaeological features drawn from the published and unpublished archaeological excavations in the central area and the Roman suburbs, from the data in the Archives of the Soprintendenza Speciale Archeologia Belle Arti e Paesaggio di Roma, from bibliographical sources and other historical sources, processed by the SITAR Project Working Group in the context of the creation of the Territorial Information System of the Soprintendenza itself. Data source. The archive data were gathered by the SITAR Working Group coordinated by Dr. Mirella Serlorenzi, Scientific Manager of the Project, among the documents held at the Soprintendenza Speciale Archeologia Belle Arti e Paesaggio di Roma offices. Limitations on use. The vector data and the relevant attributes of the Soprintendenza Speciale Archeologia Belle Arti e Paesaggio di Roma archaeological studies present in SITAR can be freely downloaded with a CC-BY-SA 4.0 license. Use of the documents accompanying the studies is subject to specific authorization from the Soprintendenza Speciale Archeologia Belle Arti e Paesaggio di Roma, to be sent using the Request for Download form provided. Processing and preparation of scientific data. Processing and preparation of scientific data for publication on the webGis by the SITAR Service (constantly updated).
New Technical Map of the Lazio Region Purpose. Base CTR 2018 (2014 processing), produced and published on a nominal scale of 1:5000 by the Lazio Region, as part of its specific prerogatives over territorial, urban and landscape planning and design. Dati source. Open Data Portal of the Lazio Region. Limitations of use.The base map of the New CTR is released under a CC BY 4.0 licenseCC BY 4.0 Processing and updates. The publication of the base map of the New CTR in the Soprintendenza webGIS was handled by the SITAR Service (October 2020), with reference to the data and georeferencing specifications provided by the Direzione Territorio e Urbanistica – Area Sistema Cartografico e Geografico. Base Land registry.
Base Land Purpose. Base Land registry for the administrative territory of the Municipalities of Rome and Fiumicino. Data source.

Areas of jurisdiction of the staff members of the Soprintendenza Speciale Archeologia Belle Arti e Paesaggio di Roma Object. Conventional subdivisions of the administrative territory of the Municipalities of Rome and Fiumicino, corresponding to the areas of jurisdiction of the staff members of the Soprintendenza Speciale Archeologia Belle Arti e Paesaggio di Roma. Data source.

The boundaries of the areas under the jurisdiction of staff members are gleaned from individual service assignments and are updated based on the indications of the Segreteria del Territorio. Processing and updates. Preparation of the boundaries of the Municipalities for publication in the webGIS and cartographic processing of the areas under the jurisdiction of the Soprintendenza Speciale Archeologia Belle Arti e Paesaggio di Roma by the SITAR Service (updated October 2020).
