Turkey’s archaeological assets go online

Monday, September 22, 2008

ADANA – A project that aims to create a complete list of all Turkey’s archaeological treasures has been recently completed and the information has been published on the Internet for the use of researchers.

Oğuz Tanındı, project coordinator of the Turkish Archaeological Accommodations, or TAA, told the Anatolia news agency that they have provided 2,907 archaeological assets and 565 caves.

Tanındı said they traveled thousands of miles for the project, which they have been working on for the past 15 years, entering written information regarding Turkey’s archaeological treasures into databases.

“We have created the TAA Geographic Data System, or GDS, so researchers, tourism business workers and official institutions can access the information in our databases easily, he said. Thanks to the TAAGGS accessibility at “http://taygis.tayproject.org“, a lot of information, such as the locations of 2,907 archaeological assets and 565 caves, can be viewed on a map of Turkey.”e
