Author(s): Robert P. Ryan; Arthur L. Rohr

Year: 1982


The Dolores Archaeological Program Automated Data Processing group is responsible for creating and maintaining computer files containing both inventory and analytical data. Currently, 117,902 records are stored in 12 different files. This report describes the development and status of the data processing effort. The use of SYSTEM 2000 as a data-base management system is detailed. Input, storage, retrieval, and manipulation of data are discussed, as are security measures and database organization. The use of specific software packages (SPSS and SYMAP) and utility programs is explained. Recommendations are included for improving the operations of the Automated Data Processing group.

Originally the information in this record was migrated into tDAR from the National Archaeological Database Reports Module (NADB-R) and updated. In 2015, as part of its effort to improve tDAR content, the Center for Digital Antiquity uploaded a copy of the document and further improved the record metadata.
