Dealing with cultural heritage sites or artifacts usually involves a large volume of heterogeneous information to be managed, accessed and analyzed by specialists. In this way we present Chisel: a cultural heritage information system based on information layers. To organize information, Chisel makes use of the traditional GIS technology but applying it on 3D meshes from cultural heritage artifacts instead of 2D maps.
