Welcome to Arches - an open-source, geospatially-enabled software platform for cultural heritage inventory and management, developed jointly by the Getty Conservation Institute and World Monuments Fund. The system is freely available for organizations worldwide to download, install, and configure in accordance with their individual needs and without restrictions.
If this is your first time hearing about Arches, we recommend starting with the Arches Project website. You can also check out the full user documentation, a manual for installation and configuration of the app for the non-developer crowd. This wiki is the main source of documentation for those who want to contribute to or extend the Arches project.
If, during any of the your work with Arches, you have any questions about how to use or install Arches, please direct them to the Arches Forum. The forum allows us to share feedback and answers with the great Arches community.
