WinRelic is an Archaeological Database which was designed to make categorizing of your archaeological sites
Why pay $10 or $100 for something that can't grow with your collection? Don't rely on any generic programs for cataloging your relics. WinRelic was specifically designed for cataloging relic finds, by a long time relic collector and surface hunter.
The cumbersome use of journals and binders to keep a multitude of archaeological sites and their respective
supporting data can become awkward and burdensome in a short period of time. By storing your sites in the database,
you can enter data against these sites. Data such as the field conditions, the artifact finds, and the property
land owners name and address.
Record site information according to U.S. Geological map, quadrangle, state and county. Against these sites you can enter their related data such as the field conditions, the artifact finds, and the property land owners name and address.
By logically grouping your data in the database, you can eliminate the need for hand written journals. All data in the production tables are in an encrypted format, accessible only to you, and to those you allow access.
With WinRelic, to pinpoint a site, you store the sites name you designate, a site number you assign, the county, quadrangle, section, township, range and elevation. Comments, only limited by your hard disk size, can be entered into a memo field for each site, site owner, and field. Using the site information, one should be able to locate a site again and again. Someone else, who has never before visited the site can also locate a site. Of course the information to locate a site is not required to be entered by you, but YOUR RELIC RELATED DATA IS AS VALUABLE AS ANY FINE RELIC!
Over the years, your site information can gain a value far greater than the documents. This data is more than the chronicles of finds, to another it could be a gold mine of information leading directly to producing locations. Protect this information against loss or theft as you would the relics themselves. Use WinRelic.
For each site you can record the property owners name and related information. For each site you visit you can record the field conditions and any finds individually.
You can assign a unique relic number to a days finds, a days site finds, or to each individual find. The more detailed you wish to record your data, the more detailed you can get.
Instead of tabulating the finds from a site for hours, with a push of a few buttons you can have the information displayed in front of you. By logically grouping your data in the database, you can eliminate the need for hand written journals. The program provides a means to document your collection in an easy and precise manner. Creating a backup of your database is also quick and easy. How often is it practical to copy a system kept in binders for a backup in case of fire, theft, or any form of destruction of your information? The database backup provides a safe and easy way of protecting your information against loss. Over time your information can take on a value all into itself which can provide relic provenance, as well as a wealth of knowledge to another relic hunter.
Keep an inventory of your reference books and materials. For example you can store the title, author, date published, publisher name and address, contact name, ISBN, volume and issue number in addition to much more information.
WinRelic makes use of multiple indexes on many tables, thus allowing you to alter the manner in which you view the data. Sorting the site data is possible on site number, site name, county, or quadrangle. Sort the references on title , author, publisher, and more! The sorted data progresses throughout the different forms, Sort in one view, change to another, and the data is still sorted.
WinRelic features a extensive help system to assist you in learning the functions of the program. An easy to learn user interface makes using the program effortless.
