The Epigraphic Corpus of Georgia (http://epigraphy.iliauni.edu.ge/) the electronic publication of ancient Aramaic, Greek, Jewish and Georgian epigraphic heritage is made according to EpiDoc, the digital heir to Leiden Convention. Georgian Epigraphic includes almost all strata of cultural groups of the ancient world which is why it is deemed to be the most international field of Kartvelology.
The prosopographic database of the first Georgian Republic and social cluster analysis (http://prosopography.iliauni.edu.ge/), the database created according to the standards of digital prosopography constitutes the most important tool for the research of social history.
