Swedigarch Geotools Launch

February 2, 2024

We are pleased to announce the launch of Swedigarch Geotools, a new plugin now available through the QGIS plugins manager. This plugin enables the export of Intrasis data to open formats, such as GeoPackage and CSV, allowing for archiving and analysis beyond the Intrasis environment.

For Intrasis users whose data is stored on a Postgres/PostGIS server, the plugin provides direct connectivity, enabling bulk exports of databases of your choice. Additionally, the plugin offers functions to explore and analyse GeoPackage content in QGIS, providing efficient access to attributes associated with objects and features, as well as facilitating the analysis of relationships between objects.

Data from the Swedish National Heritage Boards excavations will be accessible from their e-archive and visible on Fornsök. In spring 2024, we plan to launch a Geoserver to provide individual GPKG files from excavations. In the meantime, you can explore some of the plugin’s functions using the provided example of an exported GPKG.

Basic functions of the plugin are detailed on the Github wiki. A concise tutorial on working with the data in QGIS will soon be available on the Swedigarch tutorial page.
