As a follow up of the last CAA in Oslo in this session we would like to bring together scientists working on different issues of geographic relations of cultural heritage and archeological data stored in Databases. This comprises the technical prerequisites of DB-systems such as interface solutions that pass geographic, geodetic, and 3D data to visualization tools (e.g. Postgis) as well as tools and interfaces that allow the visualization of these data like web based portrayal services, GIS systems, etc.. On the other hand we want to discuss tools allowing for the spatial assessment of data in terms of spatial descriptive statistics and modelling. Moreover, we will focus on open source solutions and would like to show some application examples in order to give an overview on state of the art solutions. Finally we will also discuss how user requirements can be already considered in the design of these systems to guarantee sustainability and acceptability of the targeted user. Here questions of visualization versus interaction might be focused.
