A project to draw up an archeological map of Pasargadae, an ancient city and world heritage site in Fars Province, has begun.
“This project is a follow-up on studies carried out in the past decade,” ISNA quoted Hamid Fadaei, the heritage site’s manager, as saying.
“Morghab and Pasargadae plains are currently being studied. The acquired data will be entered in a geographic information system to create comprehensive database.”
A geographic information system is a computer system for capturing, storing, checking and displaying data related to positions on Earth’s surface. Data in different forms, including the location of rivers, roads and vegetation, can be entered into the system.
