A digital archive for Cyprus’ antiquities

The Cyprus Archaeological Digitisation Programme (CADiP) was started in order to manage thousands antiquities scattered all over Cyprus “and serve the needs of the Antiquities department as well as those of researchers and the public,” Curator of Antiquities Despo Pilides said yesterday at a news conference.

A Geographic Information System, in essence a digital map of antiquities, will interface with all existing information on the catalogued antiquities making access and research much easier.
