Dr al-Jaradat (Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities, Palestine) speaks of the Palestinian national inventory of cultural heritage sites, for which work began in 2002 and is still ongoing

Since the creation of a Palestinian Department of National Register, Palestinian authorities and international partners have work to build a comprehensive database of cultural heritage sites in the West Bank. This database comprises both published and unpublished data, recorded on an ESRI ArcGIS geodatabase. The main purpose of this inventory is to protect the main archaeological sites from ongoing building activities.
