Researchers in the field of Cultural Heritage are watching with increasing interest in the use of integrated computer technology: it allows to provide and share on the Internet both quantitative and qualitative data (geometric, positional, alphanumeric, etc.) related to Cultural Heritage, using the interaction between databases and 3D models. Such models, therefore, not only provide a virtual reconstruction of monuments as well as the browsing and the analysis of the subject in detail, but they also enable users to access to heterogeneous information (texts, images, video clips, etc.) on artifacts. Data are collected and organised in relational databases that are queriable, in order to a full understanding and contextualization of the cultural objects. In this perspective, in the last decade, we have been making several steps towards the 3D GIS (Geographic Information System), particularly in displaying three-dimensional objects within a geographic information system. The prototypes of effective 3D GIS systems, however, are still few and for the most part devoted to the description of urban areas. In this context, this research work, made within the GISLab (CNR / UNIPA) of Palermo, was aimed at implementing an information system for the description of 3D archaeological and monumental heritage: within this system the graphic information of a three-dimensional model, embedded within a 3D PDF (the Acrobat Reader format for exchanging documents, containing three-dimensional objects), is associated with semantic information, allocated in a RDBMS (Relational DataBase Management System). Such experimentation has been applied on a regional scale to the case study of the Arab-Norman "sollazzi" in Palermo and on an architectural and detailed scales to one of them: the Castle of Maredolce.
