The management of information of the cultural heritage will tackle the design and implementation of an efficient operative information system that includes all the information resulting from the research, documentation, preservation, protection, spreading, etc. of the cultural heritage, so that the information comes to the person who needs it in time to make a decision.
Within this context, the IAPH started up at the beginning of the 1990’s the Information System of the Andalusian Historical Heritage (SIPHA) that brought about the following advances:

  • creation of integrated computerised standards about the different heritage entities
  • creation of a standardised documentary language, the Thesaurus of the Andalusian Historical Heritage, pioneer at an international level due to its multidisciplinary feature.
  • including the Geographical Information Systems (SIG)
  • photographic and/or audiovisual documentation of assets or entities included in the system
  • transfer of information through the Information Services
  • on-line enquiries of the different databases

Over the last few years, the SIPHA has become part of the Sistema para la Gestión Integral del Patrimonio Cultural (MOSAICO) (system for the integral management of the cultural heritage), a project promoted by the Andalusian Ministry of Culture.
