Archaeological and planning accesses are granted to individuals, based on credentials, not to companies or agencies. Full access to archaeological location data is available to cultural resource professionals who meet the Secretary of the Interior's Professional Qualification Standards as an archaeologist. This access allows a user to see archaeological site locations and the Pre-Contact Probability Model and to submit new resource information for inclusion in the CRGIS.
Planning access is available to planning professionals whose job descriptions involve the regular development or evaluation of proposals for ground disturbing activities which may affect archaeological resources. Access will be granted to individuals, but requires authorization by a responsible employer. This access allows a user to see the Pre-Contact Probability Model, receive archaeological site information in a spatial search, and submit new resource information for inclusion in the CRGIS.
