Dig up antiques in Goa with just a click

Do you have a fascination for antiques? Now, in Goa’s directorate of archaeology in Panaji, a new software system has been put up where research scholars can browse antiques and read about them on an adjacent screen. A person can choose what antique they want to see on the touchscreen and then the system generates the antique for viewing purposes.

The system keeps an inventory of the antiques and stores information about it such as the material it’s made of, age, place it was discovered, etc.

“All this while, information was stored manually by the department. With the help of this software, there is a digital record and since it is easy to search in this machine, there are no chances of misplacement of objects,” said the contractor, Sailendra Phatak of I-Tech Business Solutions, Pune.

The introduction of this technology will open a new era of preservation strategies for artefacts. There is a need to use advanced technologies for the management and maintenance of heritage,” said deputy chief minister, Chandrakant Kavlekar. “We also have archives that date back to almost 500 years and efforts are in process to digitize them for which provision is being made in this year’s budget.”
