Abstract: The 3COORsystem project is a technological solution aimed at overcoming the drawbacks imposed in archaeological excavations by the traditional recording protocols, namely the use of an archaeological grid and the necessity of exhaustive data recording (object description, drawing, photo). 3COORsystem is composed of several subsystems that share a common database structure (3COORdatabase). The 3COORpda subsystem is devoted to field data recording following the standard working protocols for archaeological excavations established years ago for the Sierra de Atapuerca sites. The 3COORpda application is installed in a number of standard Personal Digital Agendas (PDAs) that are used by the archaeologists as mobile terminals for data input. A single standard laptop acts as the server and central data repository and Bluetooth and Wi-Fi wireless communication technologies are used in order to wirelessly connect all mobile devices. The system includes capabilities such as creating objects, searching them, and drawing them and its main features are usability, easy to learn, reliability, efficiency, scalability and security.
