The goal of this thesis is to visualise the process of developing a web application for managing and visualisation of archival materials and also to bring out its key components. What will also be described are the underlying technologies whose absence would make creating such an application impossible. As one of its basic functions, the application holds the option of creating an interactive chronological view of the archival materials’ geographical information and a capability of managing a database of archival metadata. The main characteristic of this application is its expandability and the use of archival standards within the field of material management, which makes it production-ready by adding only little changes to it. Alongside a detailed description of the application itself, the thesis brings out the question of the traditional role of archives in modern society and the possibilities of introducing novelties through the implementation of contemporary technological solutions. The web application is used as the main suggestion in the adaptation of traditional archival processes to the modern society.
