Knowledge of the past comes from what has been left behind. When artifacts are found they give insight into what the world was like before. These artifacts can be used to not repeat the mistakes that were made in the past and to enlighten the present. The public desires easier access to the knowledge contained within museums. This project developed an online GIS application that makes the contents of one private collection of artifacts accessible through the Internet. This application will allow for anyone with an Internet connection to be able to view the collection or academics to perform research on its contents.
