Field Desktop – Software for the documentation of cultural heritage translated into Ukrainian

19/12/2022

Field Desktop, an open-source software for archaeological field documentation and for documenting built heritage, has been translated into Ukrainian as part of the Cultural Heritage Response Unit project. This will allow cultural heritage at risk in Ukraine to be documented rapidly and efficiently.

Field Desktop (iDAI.field) is an open source tool for archaeological and architectural field documentation that was developed at the IT section of the German Archaeological Institute (DAI). As part of the project Cultural Heritage Response Unit – An Emergency Mechanism for Cultural Heritage in Crisis Situations, the software has now been translated into Ukrainian by Dr. Andrij Kutnyi, a building archaeologist and expert in immovable cultural property. Dr. Kutnyi is also currently conducting online training courses in Field Desktop, which are aimed at specialists in built heritage in Ukraine. The translation of the software is one of a number of measures that the DAI and the Cultural Heritage Response Unit have taken since the start of the war in Ukraine with the purpose of supporting archaeologists and heritage conservation specialists in the country.

About Field Desktop

The software combines functions of GIS, photo management and database systems and is intended to make it easier to document the various procedures involved in archaeological work. Field Desktop is equipped with a customisable data model and can be adapted and used freely according to the demands of the project concerned.

Field Desktop is being further developed so that it can meet the challenges of the different disciplines and methods, such as excavation and surveying, and can also be used for architecture and object studies. The software allows participatory working and data input in the field, even in places where internet coverage is unreliable.
