A new generation of archaeological tools
From collecting data in the field, to interpreting and analysing, to sharing and archiving – FAIMS provides a solution.
FAIMS is a suite of digital tools for all stages of the archaeology lifecycle. Flexible and scalable, FAIMS is designed to work with any workflow, ontology or standard. FAIMS is so flexible it can be used with any research discipline involving fieldwork data collection.
Collect information digitally in the field using the FAIMS Mobile Platform. Use an Android mobile device running the FAIMS app and sync data to an on-site server for doing fully offline GIS.
Analyse and visualise your data collected in the field using the FAIMS Web Tools suite. Heurist is ready to use now and more tools are in the pipeline.
Preserve your data and make it available to other researchers. Powered by the proven tDAR platform, FAIMS Repository is the place to archive, protect and share your data.
… the tablet app worked very well in the field and I would be keen to continue using it for subsequent sampling.
The app has been such an incredible advantage in terms of workload, data quality, and a number of other data management issues with which archaeologists regularly have to deal. […] I can see this user-friendly app being easily transferrable to other projects, and the support team has been brilliant.
I am in a state of shock because I got the tablet to work and download the app with almost no trouble at all! […] even sleep deprived OCD academics can make this sh*t work easily.
