Site Recorder 4 Software
Site Recorder 4 (SR4) is mapping, recording and finds handling software for maritime, freshwater and intertidal archaeology projects. Combining versatility and flexibility with an easy to use style, this software is capable of integrating all of the information collected during a large scale excavation but is just as useful for small scale mapping and evaluation projects. Site Recorder 4 is a geographic information system (GIS), finds database, survey processing program, dive log and image management tool all rolled into one seamless program.
Site Recorder 4 is powerful, practical and easy to use for real time data collection, decision support, publication, archiving and data migration. The program has been designed by archaeologists for archaeologists so you don’t need to be a computer expert to use it.
Unlike most GIS programs, Site Recorder is designed for collecting information not simply displaying it. The program has been designed for collecting data during fieldwork and creating site plans by combining detailed site drawings and survey data. Site Recorder can manage thousands of finds, photographs, survey data, dive logs, samples and documents – all the information relating to an underwater or intertidal site. Items can be associated with one another allowing quick and easy retrieval for analysis and interpretation. Different features in the program are used at different stages in the project but all seamlessly fit together into one dedicated application
Site Recorder 4 is the industry standard for underwater archaeological site recording and is in use by governments, universities, museums and companies in more than 23 countries across the world.
Site Recorder 4 is shipped with a free PDF manual and a free self-paced Exercise Book so you can easily become familiar with the program.
