History of the Project
SITAR WebGIS is the outcome of a new engineering process begun in 2018 that improved the system’s performance from a technological and IT point of view. The webGIS offers new tools for browsing, consulting and searching for data on the archaeological research conducted by the Soprintendenza Speciale Archeologia Belle Arti e Paesaggio di Roma. The new application allows users to explore the contents on a map, customize the map layers, save their searches, share data and acquire archaelogical Open Data in the principal open formats (JSON, KML, SHP, GEOTIFF, SGV). In addition the Digital Library, through the use of ElasticSearch, makes it possible to carry out text searches in the information present in the database and in the enormous numbers of documents kept in the SITAR digital archive.
The new SITAR Project website collects the project’s ten-year experience, providing users with all the information they need to consult and use SITAR data, and acting as a privileged access point for the Open Data and for information on the most recent archaeological discoveries in the city of Rome. The redesigned layout allows users to access all the contents and in-depth presentations quickly and easily, providing instructions and tutorials to help them browse the new WebGIS SITAR application and use the Open Data; it also providesProfessional Users with guidelines for the preparation of data to be included in SITAR and for the delivery of the documentation. The website was implemented using the WordPress platform and SEO optimization of the pages was performed to improve the site’s visibility on the web.
New engineering of the Protections module.
Development of the protections module in the SITAR WebGIS aimed at improving its performance from a technological and IT point of view. The structural implementation of the new module of Safeguarding Measures involves designing interfaces for the management and visualization of protections as well as tools in the service of operational procedures.
Collaboration to exchange SITAR excavation and archive documentation for the data produced by the Rome Transformed project.Rome Transformed
Rome Transformed is a five-year interdisciplinary research project (2019-2024), funded by the European Research Council (ERC) as part of the European Union research and innovation programme Horizon 2020. Its aim is the integrated analysis of urban development and the mapping of religious, military and political changes on the eastern Caelian hill from the 1st to the 8th century CE. The project, led by the University of Newcastle with the participation of the British School at Rome, the Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche and the University of Florence, is carried out with the collaboration of the Sovrintendenza Capitolina ai Beni Culturali and the Soprintendenza Speciale Archeologia Belle Arti e Paesaggio di Roma. The collaboration with the Soprintendenza Speciale Archeologia Belle Arti e Paesaggio di Roma involves exchanging the excavation and archive documentation acquired by the SITAR Project for the data produced by the Rome Transformed project, which will be incorporated into the SITAR WebGIS when the research project ends.

Exchange of WMS web services with the “GIS of Rome in the 18th century” system based on Nolli’s map, created by the CROMA research centre of the Università di Roma Tre.croma.uniroma3.it
The HGIS (Historical GIS) of Rome in the 18th century is an integral part of the multidisciplinary project to create an “Atlas of Rome” promoted by CROMA at the Università Roma Tre. The objective of the “Atlas” is to analyse Rome’s physical and socio-economic characteristics and their transformations over time through the integrated use of historical sources of a cartographic, documentary and iconographic nature. A first phase of the project, involving the study of 18th-century Rome, makes use of a cartographic-descriptive source of prime importance: the “Nuova pianta di Roma” published in 1748 by Giovanni Battista Nolli. The HGIS follows the publication in 2013 of the two-volume “Roma nel Settecento”. The project was carried out in collaboration with the Marco Besso Foundation, MIBACT (Archivio di Stato di Roma, Biblioteca di Archeologia e Storia dell’Arte, Biblioteca Nazionale Centrale di Roma, Istituto Nazionale per la Grafica), Roma Capitale-Assessorato alla Cultura, creatività e produzione artistica (Archivio Storico Capitolino, Biblioteca Sarti, Museo di Roma). The collaboration with the Soprintendenza Speciale Archeologia Belle Arti e Paesaggio di Roma involves the exchange of WMS web services between SITAR and HGIS.
Preliminary work on issues connected to the multi-dimensional representation of geographic archaeological data.
Initial testing of 3D GIS functions and preliminary work on issues connected to the multi-dimensional representation of the geographic archaeological data systematized in the SITAR GeoDB, in parallel with the technological developments that led to the set up of the SITAR database and the implementation of the various web applications. Testing of functions to represent and query test data relating to a sector of the urban centre of Rome has begun.
Experimental development of a web environment for sharing all SITAR information resources with different categories of users.
The prototype for the SITAR Knowledge Management System (KMS) was the object of a short line of development between 2016 and 2017, aimed at testing the implementation of a web environment in which all SITAR information resources could be shared with different categories of users, from the design and technical documentation relating to the web platform, to the in-depth studies carried out over time on individual excavation and conservation sites, documentation on monuments and archaeological sites, on primary archive sources, etc. The prototype used the Open Source software Moodle, in other words a platform offering accessibility to sections and documents and thus improving interaction between SITAR and the user.
The first informational website dedicated to the SITAR Project is created.
The first SITAR Project website provided access to various information sections characterized by a progressively increasing level of detail and, via the application tools menu on the home page, to the various web applications for the management and initial publication of data, in addition to the relevant illustrative documentation. The website was based on an instance of the WordPress CMS, whose graphic template was configured using Themify.
First version of the new webAIS application and transition from the Map Guide framework to GeoServer.
First version of the webAIS using web maps generated by GeoServer (and no longer Map Guide as for the webGIS). The functional logic of the GeoServer web map server, used to implement the webAIS, makes it possible to publish any dataset (spatial tables from the SITAR GeoDB; shape files; raster type geospatial resources; etc.), making it accessible to any type of OGC-compliant client in WMS and WFS mode, in numerous standard formats among those defined by the OGC and in use in the context of interoperability between SGIS/SIT/IDT systems.
Development of the Document Management Module or Digital Archive.
The Document Management Module or Digital Archive (SIGEDO) is the web application dedicated to the management of the digital documents correlated with SITAR’s logical-conceptual classes (OI, PA, UA and DT), generated during the day-to-day workflows of the Soprintendenza and optimized, georeferenced and tagged with metadata by the SITAR Office. The application was conceived, designed and implemented for the sole purpose of providing users authorized to manage document files with a web tool capable of carrying out some simple operations: accessing the essential identifying and descriptive metadata for each documentary resource stored in SITAR, thanks to the availability of a preliminary orientation tool with respect to the growing size of the system’s documentation section and of a useful reference point for requesting copies of documents, especially scientific ones, for study and work purposes. The development of the application code was based on the integration of Php with ExtJS, using some plug-ins of the latter Open Source framework to manage basic functions related to the processing and consultation of the digital documents (upload, preview, download, etc.).
Experimental development of the Stratigraphic Unit Module application for the management of the stratigraphic unit records.
The prototype for the Stratigraphic Unit Module application was a preliminary experiment with the management of the records relating to the Stratigraphic Units (US/Unità Stratigrafiche) and the attached documents, conducted as part of a rescue archaeology excavation site in the centre of Rome. The technological development, based on an implementation of the user interface via Php and ExtJS and on the GeoServer web map server, entailed a specific conceptual analysis of the well-known MiBACT rules for compiling US records and on the necessary integration into the SITAR GeoDB of all the logical-conceptual relationships and associations needed to manage the archaeological documentation on the stratigraphic units and on any stratigraphic archaeological excavation.
Launch of the new Digital Library project line.
Launch of the Digital Library project line for the management of documentary resources correlated with the information entities of the SITAR archaeological and geographic database. This is an advanced management system for the publication and sharing of the document repository present in the Document Management Module or Digital Archive. with all users of the SITAR platform. The Digital Library aims to implement an environment serving not just for management, like Document Management Module or Digital Archive, but to expand the systematization, publication, sharing and full enhancement of the informational heritage of Rome and its territory.
Scientific and technological cooperation for a pilot project on the advanced digitization and metadata tagging of the archival holdings of the Museo Nazionale dell’Alto Medioevo di Roma, for its complete integration into the SITAR database and into the Science and Technology Digital Library of the Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche.
The Science & Technology Digital Library Project (2012-2015) was launched to develop and create a Digital Library to make science, culture and technology available to all, ensuring efficient and transparent management and use. The Science & Technology Digital Library (S&TDL) manages a rich range of integrated tools and contents, easy to use thanks to a single simplified access point, making available several hundred thousand digital resources of a very heterogeneous nature: research products and datasets, data and information on research activities, digitized contents of historical and cultural interest, three-dimensional objects and multimedia materials. The expert use of the semantic web has made it possible to develop a network of relationships and interconnections between the system’s various components. As part of the collaboration with the Museo Nazionale dell’Alto Medioevo di Roma, a pilot project for the advanced digitization and metadata tagging of the museum’s archival holdings was launched to fully integrate it into the SITAR database and into the Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche’s Science and Technology Digital Library.
Institutional collaboration between the Archivio Centrale dello Stato and the Soprintendenza Speciale per il Colosseo, il Museo Nazionale Romano e l’Area Archeologica di Roma to catalogue, digitize, analyse and subsequently network the drawings, recordings and excavation reports in the Gatti Archive.acs.beniculturali.it Collaboration
The Gatti Archive holds documentation on the principal excavation, research and safeguarding activities carried out in Rome between the end of the 19th century and the 1960s, meticulously documented by Giuseppe (1838-1914), Edoardo (1875-1928), and Guglielmo Gatti (1905-1981): three generations of topographers of ancient Rome and draughtsmen working at the Soprintendenza statale and the X Ripartizione Antichità e Belle Arti of Rome. The archive papers were donated to the Archivio Centrale dello Stato by the heirs of Guglielmo Gatti on the latter’s death in 1981. The convention on institutional collaboration between the Archivio Centrale dello Stato and the Soprintendenza Speciale per il Colosseo, il Museo Nazionale Romano e l’Area Archeologica di Roma was established to catalogue, digitize, analyse and subsequently network the drawings, recordings and excavation reports in the Gatti Archive.
Integration of web editing and analysis tools.
Integration of more advanced web editing and analysis tools present in other desktop or SaaS applications, both commercial and FOSS, such as map editing, georeferencing of raster entities and multivariate statistical analyses.

Its aim is to innovate network services and create a preliminary digital infrastructure prototype dedicated to the SITAR web platform, entirely implemented on the nodes of the GARR-X Network and connected to GÉANT, Europe’s leading resource for research and education.
Semantic and technological interoperability between different public information systems including the CIDOC-CRM-Archeo specification.
The European project ARIADNE – Advanced Research Infrastructure for Archaeological Dataset Networking in Europe – aims to create a research infrastructure that networks the data contained in the archaeological digital archives of various countries and allows researchers to access it directly from the web. The Project is coordinated by the Laboratorio Servizi Didattici e Scientifici (Pin) of the Università di Firenze, with the participation of the Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR). The partners of the ARIADNE network strive to achieve a high level of interoperability, in particular by cross-referencing the metadata belonging to the various datasets and by improving the thesauruses to overcome language barriers. The linked data paradigm, data mining, and natural language processing (NLP) techniques offer further opportunities for integration. SITAR has launched a memorandum of understanding with the Ariadne Project to share open datasets of an geographic archaeological nature with a conceptual and physical mapping between the SITAR data model and the Soprintendenza’s NIOBE database and the well-known CIDOC-CRM semantic model, in particular the CIDOC-CRM-Archaeo specification.

Publication of SITAR web services: experimental WMS and WFS for the publication of the datasets relating to the four primary logical classes (OI – surveys, PA – features, UA – monuments/complexes, DT – safeguarding instruments).
Definition of the minimum requirements for the creation of the national archaeological SIT (Sistema Informativo Geografico/geographic information system) for archaeological heritage – SITAN.
The Joint Commitee for the development and drafting of a project for the creation of the geographic information system of Italian archaeological heritage, appointed by the Minister for cultural heritage and activities with Ministerial Decree no. 22 of 22 December 2009, held six plenary meetings in 2010. The committee relied on a special internal Technical Group that included some members of the Committee itself alongside highly qualified experts in the field of information technology applied to archaeology. When work concluded on 4 February 2011, the Committee unanimously approved a Concluding Document containing an articulated and detailed operational plan for activities to be undertaken for the effective creation of SITAN. The Ministero per i Beni e le Attività culturali took on board the suggestions set out in the Committee’s final report and, on direct appointment by the Direttore Generale per le antichità Luigi Malnati, the joint and permanent working group was established on 30 November 2011 for the creation of the SIT Nazionale per i Beni Archeologici, chaired by Malnati himself and composed of M. R. Barbera, A. Campanelli, F. Gambari, G. Sassatelli, G. Azzena, S. Campana, P. Carafa, A. Gottarelli, L. Moro, A. Negri, M. Serlorenzi, M. G. Fichera, with the specific task of testing the potential of the overall SITAN project and its practical application.
First version of the Charter of Archaeological Protections of Rome.
The Safeguarding Web Environment is based on a specialization of the previous webGIS, from which it differs for some aspects of the interface and especially for the specific functions implemented ad hoc for the management of legal protection instruments and the closely related administrative, personal and land registry information. For reasons of institutional jurisdiction, the development base focused solely on archaeological safeguarding instruments. The technical development paradigm therefore coincided with that of the webGIS, based on Map Guide in the Server Enterprise version released by Autodesk in 2010 as a web map server and Php, ExtJS and Open Layers for the implementation of the user interface.
Implementation of the SITAR database, with computerization of the Protections Archive and expansion of the system’s logical architecture. The Sistema Informativo Territoriale Archeologico di Roma/Geographic Archaeological Information System of Rome uses Open Source software.
Second phase of system development, involving the expansion of SITAR’s conceptual and data model (OI, PA, DT) with the implementation of the new logical class of Archaeological Units (UA/Unità Archeologiche), the functional extension of the web-based record management application with the addition of a new module dedicated to the management of the existing knowledge base with which to guide analyses and specialist studies of the seismic risk to archaeological monuments and historical complexes. The optimizations and logical integrations concerned the entire structuring of the geodatabase, including the spatial extension of the tables dedicated to classes of entities absent from the prototype version of the SITAR DB. Alongside the evolution of the logical structure of the SITAR geoDB, a fundamental process of analysis and technological development focused on the policies of controlled access to the web applications and to the SITAR database. The outcome was, in the first instance, the integration into the web record management application of a module for managing groups of users and individual users (so-called RBAC – Role Based Access Control) and of a specific module for granular permissions at the level of the individual data set OI, PA, UA and DT (RAC – Record Access Control).
Establishment of the joint committee to define minimum requirements for the creation of a national geographic information system.
Establishment of the Joint Committee for the development and drafting of a project to create a geographic information system for Italian archaeological heritage, appointed by the Minister for Cultural Heritage and Activities with Ministerial Decree no. 22 of 22 December 2009.

Agreement for the exchange of geographic archaeological data and base maps (protocol no. 16870 of 17/08/2009) for a preliminary census of the archaeological and monumental areas under the legal jurisdiction of the Soprintendenza Speciale per il Colosseo, il Museo Nazionale Romano e l’Area Archeologica di Roma and the Municipality of Rome, promoted by the Ufficio del Commissario governativo per l’Area archeologica di Roma ed Ostia.
Application of 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 to analyse and reduce the seismic risk to Rome’s archaeological and monumental heritage.dssbc.unisi.it
Application of 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 to analyse and reduce the seismic risk to Rome’s archaeological and monumental heritage. The Commissioner aimed to use SITAR as a container in which to collect all the data from the studies and activities carried out to secure the main archaeological sites under the jurisdiction of the Soprintendenza. The development of the interface for recording data on seismic risk was entrusted to the Laboratorio di Informatica applicata all’archeologia medievale (LIAAM) of the Università di Siena.
Initial development and testing of web applications: scientific data published for the first time on the SITAR webGIS on the Soprintendenza intranet.
The initial design phase led to the structuring of the essential core of the SITAR database with the first logical levels: Origini dell’Informazione/Origins of Information (OI), Partizioni Archeologiche/Archaeological Subdivisions (PA), Dispositivi di Tutela/Safeguarding Instruments (DT) and a prototype of the interface of the web record management application implemented using the «Ruby on rails» web development framework, in order to interface the database structured on RDBMS Open Source in PostgreSQL 8.3. The Map Guide Studio 2009 web mapping tool was used to generate the web layout, the map objects, the map layers and some joins among the data published in the WebGIS prototype. At the same time, the Working Group initially studied and defined the procedures for finding, digitally processing and systematising the archive data present in the various headquarters and offices of the Soprintendenza Speciale per i Beni Archeologici di Roma. This latter activity also required appropriate structuring of the SITAR hardware platform. During the testing phases, the system resources were made accessible exclusively to users within the local Soprintendenza Speciale per i Beni Archeologici di Roma intranet.
Exchange of archaeological data relating to the historic centre between SITAR and the “Atlante di Roma” project.
Activation of a process of data exchange and interoperability between SITAR and the Sistema Informativo Archeologico di Roma antica e del suo territorio (SIA), developed by the chair of Archeologia e Storia dell’Arte Greca e Romana of the Facoltà di Scienze Umanistiche of the Università di Roma “La Sapienza”.
