This course is a independent study in which we seek to improve the current AVKAT solution to view archaeologic information in the ArcGIS 10 environment. The web design and user interface for AVKAT has been built. Our task is to build a database in Microsoft SQL Server 2008 to house our Archeologic data and connect it with the ArcGIS Environment. This task will improve the functionality of the web interface by giving us the possibility to display and query relevant features of our collected data.
We begin with an array of administrative tasks to insure that we have access to all relevant data and programs across several key network drives. We will be using the server named ‘Earth’ for the bulk of our work in manipulating the AVKAT project. Today we have obtained all the sufficent credentials that we need to work on ‘Earth’. We have begun to familiarize ourselves with the AVKAT data and central program that drives our current user interface found at http://earth.cofc.edu:10080/avkat.html.
