This process is identical for all other forms of documentation, digital or physical.
Digital photos can be downloaded to a computer, catalogued, annotated in the database and archived onto CDs/DVDs.
What has been described is a digital accession system for the physical and virtual artefacts excavated or created by archaeologists in an excavation – the same scenario can be created for heritage management work. But in order to move between present and past analysis, interpretation and visualisation of the archaeological record - we must also transport the past into the present, e.g. make our work understandable and sizeable for the public, and here we will use the Goseck multimedia excavation in Saxony-Anhalt, Germany as a case study.
