ABSTRACT

In the paper, the movable monuments integration in one space with the use of GIS technology is proposed. From the user’s point of view, GIS is a tool that very strongly supports the dissemination and promotion of cultural heritage resources. Above all, the GIS provides access to resources - regardless of their original location - from one common level, from the map. However, there is a lack of GIS collecting the number of resources from more than one institution. The reason for the current situation are perhaps the differences in the ways of collecting the collections, describing them and way of digitization. Created databases are different, the exchange of data between them requires advanced computer knowledge, and often it is completely impossible.
The subject of using monuments descriptions - prepared with the use of international standards - as a basis for movable collections integration, is described in the paper. Standards for description immovable heritage, as well as standards used in digital libraries are taken into consideration. The aim of the work is the possibility of creating one common spatial databases for monuments. The most popular standards of monuments descriptions were analyzed. The scope of the information collected and their semantics, and above all the importance and way o saving and integrating spatial information are described.

Keywords: cultural heritage, historical GIS, standard for monument description
