seen from a spatial information specialists’ point of view. Results of work in several working areas will be presented: establishment
of a spatial reference system, fusion of spatial data obtained from different sources with special credit given to the role of digital
between all project participants and other interested persons. Readers will get an idea how to combine data from various sources

Seit 1997 finden im Bereich Yozgat, einer Stadt in Zentralanatolien, an deren Stelle sich Tavium, die ehemalige Hauptstadt des
Hettitherreichs befand, archäologische Forschungen statt. Der Artikel befasst sich mit den Vorbereitungsarbeiten für zukünftige
Ausgrabungen im ehemaligen Stadtbereich, und zwar aus der Sicht der raumbezogenen Informationsverarbeitung. Ergebnisse aus
verschiedenen Arbeitsbereichen werden vorgestellt, und zwar die Einrichtung eines räumlichen Bezugssystems, die Vereinigung von
raumbezogenen Daten aus verschiedenen Quellen, wobei die Rolle von digitalen Geländemodellen besonders berücksichtigt wird,
und, schlussendlich, der Entwurf und die Realisierung einer Internet-Präsentation, um den Informationsaustausch zwischen den
Projektbeteiligten und anderen interessierten Personen zu unterstützen und zu fördern. Der Leser erhält eine Vorstellung, wie sich
Daten aus unterschiedlichen Quellen mit verschiedenen räumlichen Eigenschaften in demselben räumlichen Informationssystem
verknüpfen und die daraus gewonnenen Informationen in einem webbasierten Informationssystem integrieren lassen.
