FMIS is an antiquarian database that contains all known ancient monuments in Sweden. The database is widely accessible through the internet for anybody interested. Even though FMIS is antiquarian and not strictly archaeological the database has been used in GIS and landscape archaeology since its construct. This use has not always been without problematic and has caused critique of the use and the database itself. This critic has seldom been published but rather heard through seminars and the word of mouth. The research potential of using FMIS for GIS and landscape archaeology has therefore never really been investigated in any greater depth. In this thesis I therefore study FMIS potential within GIS and landscape archaeology. This is done by discussing the history of FMIS, FMIS structure and the ancient monuments representativity within FMIS.
