    Grazie alla sua versatilità data dalla struttura XML, il linguaggio GML (Geographic Markup Language) dell’Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) si sta rivelando sempre di più un valido strumento per lo scambio di dati geograci, graci ed alfanumerici in maniera standard ed interoperabile sia su piattaforme GIS locali che web oriented. Il nostro progetto consiste nell’integrazione del GML con dati non geograci utilizzando l’applicativo MAD (Managing Archaeological Data) sviluppato per la gestione di dataset archeologici strutturati e non strutturati al ne di creare un sistema completamente basato su sintassi XML per la gestione sia dei dati geograci che non geograci.

    GIS is an efficient tool for the management of complex geospatial datasets, but geographic information is stored in heterogeneous environments which makes sharing very difficult. To overcome this lack of interoperability, the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) has created an XML-based Geographic Markup Language (GML) to provide an XML-based encoding of geo-spatial data and make them portable and flexible enough to be used in different contexts. Data encoded in GML can be integrated with non-spatial data using MAD (ManagingArchaeological Data), an application designed to manage structured and unstructured archaeological excavation datasets in order to create complete XML-based systems. This paper will present the GIS extension of MAD enabling the integration with non-spatial excavation information to preserve the native web compliancy of data and the possibility of managing unstructured documents (excavation diaries and reports) in a spatial context.
