The WebGIS was developed at the Institute for Spatial Information and Surveying Technology at the University of Mainz in collaboration with the Institute of Near Eastern Archeology at the LMU Munich.

The goal of the WebGIS is the visualization of all find spots registered by the archeological team in the project TexTelSem.

At present, the site includes data from a total of over 50 surveys and more than 1000 individual sites. Of these sites, ca. 80% were documented only through ground surveys, that is, only rudimentary information is available for these sites, while ca. 20% were subject to archeological excavation.

The dating of sites is based on the archeological division of the second millennium into Middle and Late Bronze Age and thus largely follows the chronological conventions applied in the APUM (Anastasio et al. 2004, 16f.)

In addition to information provided by the available secondary literature, the registry was able to use a number of digital sources for the geographical localization of sites, including the "ANE Placemarks for Google Earth" compiled by Olof Pedersén.
