The Archaeological Information System of the Czech Republic (AIS CR) is a tool designed to integrate digital resources on Czech archaeology. Its main aim is to apply the information system of the Archaeological Map of the Czech Republic (AMCR) in practice, to enhance it and to link it to other data sources. AIS CR is developed as a backbone infrastructure of the Czech archaeology, which serves the purposes of data registration and storage, popularisation and dissemination, and as well of primary research. Main potential of the data lies in the possibility of better understanding the landscape evolution and past human behaviour.
