Our workshop will be started at a 0 level of digital cartography. We'll start with an explanation of the history of cartography through archaeological sources. Then in the second time, we'll introduce to Qgis the most important open source GIS software in the world. At last, we'll teach how to use Pyarchinit to manage an archaeological excavation.
