Heritage Database Hosting

When it comes to heritage database hosting, we use an open source web platform called Arches. Funded and managed by the Getty Conservation Institute, Arches is a full-featured inventory platform that can act as both a secure repository for your historic data, and a sophisticated data collection application for future historic preservation work.
