Intrasis 3 is the core of the Intrasis System
In Intrasis you administer, import, edit and register data. To each project you can connect one database with it's map (Database View) where you enter and browse data and you can have several GIS Views for analysis and overview. For each GIS View a layout can be created. The Project Window gives you an overview of connected Intrasis database and GIS Views.
For increased security there are three levels of system rights; guest, user and administrator. The program is designed for a multi-user environment, both at the site or in your office environment. A backup function can be used to secure data if not stored on servers with centralized backup.
With the Intrasis system, a method for survey and coding is provided to facilitate easy import of geographical information. During survey the objects are given identities and you also have the possibility to create relations between objects for example between an archaeological artifact and its context. Data in survey instruments are stored in files which are transferred from the survey instrument to your computer.
Import of data
Intrasis Import Wizard is used for all kind of data import, e g geometry, object information documents and images. Survey files are imported to the system by the Import Wizard. The data is converted to GeoObjects and the survey code also contains information about type of object, ID and relation (optional) to other objects. During the import process the system checks for code and geometry errors. Mistakes made in codes during survey can be corrected and GeoObjects can be edited e.g. you can move, add or delete vertices. Image and document data can either be stored in the database or as files.
Create objects and entering information
Objects can be created either by data import or directly in the Create Object dialog. For existing objects you can add, change or just browse data in the Object Browser. Attribute data can be registered and the system also facilitates longer text descriptions. Settings for each database (metadata) determine the type of value for attributes, either you select from an alternative list or you type a value. The six different information tabs in the Object Browser can be docked in different ways so you can customize your browsing.
By creating relations between the objects the different information from e.g. a posthole and a sample analysis is joined. You can also create relations to digital pictures e.g. photos or scanned drawings and thereby view them together with your attribute information. All alterations made in Intrasis information is extensively logged and can be viewed in Events tab.
To make analysis of your Intrasis data quick and easy there are some very useful Wizards to guide you through the process; Child relation Wizard and Summation Wizard. The output from the child relation is layer(s) and tables with all objects related to your input object or table. Summation Wizard will summarize a given attribute value which can be filtered in several ways to create e.g. artifact distribution for a certain type of ceramics or daggers type III.
In the Graph View you can overlook you registered relations and you can have several graph views. It is possible to view one relation type in each graph and you can filter for relation, e.g. Above/Below. Further information for objects can be directly viewed by a direct connection to the Object Browser.
