Extended Matrix Framework (EMF) is part of an Open Source ecosystem where different tools are shared with other communities.
EMF empowers EM with several digital tools:
alongside the Extended Matrix, over the years, a technological framework, based on a range of open software, has been developed that allows this language to be easily developed and, through the representation of virtual reconstructions, helps to bring archaeological study to a level of enhancement for the public.
While EM is the theoretical and methodological background, usable even outside a digital environment (an EM can be sketched out on a sheet of paper with a pencil as well as with a software tool), EMF includes digital solutions and software platforms (which can substantially change in the future if relevant technological innovations occur).
EM is about scientific-driven content creation, EMF is about technological-driven solutions.
Every version of the EM has an equivalent EMF digital framework identified by the same number (at present EM 1.3 has its EMF 1.3).
