Each Archeobase user has his own account and accesses it with his e-mail and password from any web browser (computer, tablet, smartphone). The accesses are thus individualized.
All data is linked to the person who inserts it. This ensures the tracking of additions and modifications. Moreover, the display of data and tables can be fully configured according to the needs of each user.
Institutions purchase individual accesses and distribute them to their employees who can access all the institution's interventions. The various rights (reading, writing, form creation, site configuration, etc.) can be assigned at the individual level and are fully configurable by the institution's administrator.
Included in an individual access
The individual access holder has free storage space for 10 GB of data. This represents about 2000 pictures (average size, 5MB)
To be automatically displayed on the web map, the orthophotos must be tiled. Tiling of the first five orthophotos per user is free.
The exportation of data in Excel or Shapefile format is integrated. This enables transitivity between differents programs, if necessary.
For institutions: storage space and tiling capabilities correspond to the total amount offered by their members' individual accesses.
Limited additional costs for intensive use
The user only pays for the storage space he uses in addition to the quantities offered in an individual access. A monthly statement of quantities is calculated.
0.03 CHF per GB (approx. 200 photos)
The cost of tiling is CHF 0.008 per MB, which means CHF 0.15 for an orthophoto of size 20MB.
For institutions: To ease annual billing, annual provisioning can be achieved by announcing an approximation of storage space needed as well as tiling capacity requirements.
Monthly calculation example
An institution has ten employees and 50 archaeological sites in ArcheoBase. Every site has 1000 photos (average size of a photo, 5MB used for the example).
- Individual access price: 10 * 18 = CHF 180.-
- Quantity of photos: 50 sites * 1000 photos = 50'000 photos
- Photo storage size: 50'000 * 5 MB = 250 GB
Free storage included in individual access:
- 10 employees * 10 GB = 100 GB
Final storage cost
- Difference: 250 GB - 100 GB = 150 GB
- Monthly storage cost: 150 GB * 0.03 = CHF 4.50
Total monthly cost:
180 + 4.50 = CHF 184.50
Additional modules / functionalities
Adding the module to the basic individual access (ArcheoView-ArcheoEntry-ArcheoAnalysis), the price of the module is an additional CHF 4.00 per month. If the number of individual access should be over 62, the maximum monthly price of ArcheoForum module would be CHF 250.- per institution.
For users who do not have a basic individual access and wish to use the ArcheoForum module independently, the price of the module remains the same, i.e. CHF 4.00 per month.
Some institutions want to be able to import data into ArcheoEntry or to be able to export it in large volumes from ArcheoEntry to another system or server for daily, weekly or monthly backup.
Added to Basic Individual Access (ArcheoView-ArcheoEntry-ArcheoAnalysis), the price of this feature is CHF 4.- additional, monthly. If the number of individual accesses exceeds 62, the maximum monthly price for this feature will be CHF 250.- per institution.
Prepaid daily accesses give the flexibility to have an individual access for the day, for example for an external person coming to a building site for a few days.
The price of a prepaid daily access is CHF 3.- per day. This type of daily access is reserved for temporary staff working at the institution for a period of less than six months during the current year.
The administrator registers the person in ArcheoBase and assigns the status of "temporary staff". The cost is then automatically calculated based on the number of days the user logs into the application.
The administrator can change this "temporary staff" account into a "permanent staff" account at any time, in order to benefit from the advantageous price of individual access with annual commitment.
