Abstract

The following research article presents an innovative initiative that integrates meteorological data on the website of the emblematic archaeological site of Malqui-Machay, located in Ecuador. This site, discovered through a meticulous and rigorous ethnohistorical study that included an exhaustive review of archives, libraries and field work both nationally and internationally, represents an invaluable cultural and archaeological heritage for the country. Furthermore, it has been a catalyst for the empowerment and active participation of local Quichua-speaking communities in the reclamation and celebration of this ancestral legacy. The main objective of incorporating meteorological data on the website is to encourage and strengthen conservation and sustainable management actions of this archaeological site of historical relevance. Likewise, it seeks to provide updated climate information in real time, providing visitors and the general public with a valuable environmental context that enriches their educational and cultural experience when exploring this emblematic place. The methodology used in the development of this initiative included an exhaustive review of the existing literature, in order to understand the current state and best practices in the integration of meteorological data in web environments related to archaeological projects. The analysis of the results obtained revealed a direct correlation between the popularity of climate-related web pages and the frequency of access to real-time meteorological data by users. Finally, the positive impact of this initiative in the empowerment of local communities and the promotion of sustainable tourism in the region, strengthening the ties between the population and their ancestral legacy
