Project Details


construct a GIS-based model of Koster Horizon 11 spatial structure in order to facilitate sampling strategies, integrate microfossil, use-wear and macroremain data, situate radiocarbon data within a stratigraphic framework, and to gain an overall picture of spatial context. Year 1: The GIS model of H11 will consist of four distinct datasets: 1) Stacked raster layers recording debris concentrations by square, quadrat, and level, derived from artifact tabulation tables. Each quadrat/level will be coded for counts and weights of all artifact classes. 2) Vector point clouds of all artifacts 2.5 cm (1 inch) and greater, by debris type. These will be generated by scanning, georeferencing, and on-screen digitizing individual debris maps showing the location of limestone, chert, bone, shell, and formal tools as mapped in the field. 3) Vector polygon representations of features by excavation level, created by scanning, georeferencing, and on-screen digitizing feature-level maps
