The Archaeological Information System of the Czech Republic (AIS CR) is a platform which integrates digital sources in Czech archaeology. Its principal aim is the application of the information system Archaeological Map of the Czech Republic (AMCR) in the practice of archaeological institutions and individuals in the Czech Republic and its expansion and interconnection with other data sources. A key role in this process is played by the processing of databases for Moravia and Czech Silesia and their consolidation with existing databases on the Czech territory.
