MARIANO, Carolina I.; ENDERE, María Luz; PEDROTTA, Victoria  and  MARIANO, Mercedes. Anatomy of a Geographic Information System (GIS) for the archaeological heritage of the center of Buenos Aires province. Comechingonia [online]. 2014, vol.18, n.2, pp.225-247. ISSN 1851-0027.

The archaeological heritage management in Buenos Aires province, Argentina, has been scarcely analyzed in scientifc works despite the great number of archaeological researches carried out in the region in recent decades. In this sense, it is proposed that one of the possible causes of the lack of effective protection policies may be due to lack of appropriate methodological tools. The purpose of this paper is to present a set of strategies that aim to solve this problem. They are based on the development of a methodology for the management of archaeological information of the municipalities of Tandil, Azul and Olavarria, located at the centre of Buenos Aires Province. It is implemented by means of a geographic information system which can be adapted to any another area of interest. The internal structure of this tool is presented, and their variables are carefully described. The need for interdisciplinary work to collect and systematize data is also stressed. Finally, the raisons why this tool constitutes an innovative and key input for planning management policies are presented.

Keywords : Geographical Information System; Heritage management; Buenos Aires province.
