Abstract

Although archaeology is a discipline traditionally associated with shovels, screens, and bags of artifacts, archaeologists are making more effective use of GIS to create precise maps of both small and large-scale landscape features thus bringing better environmental and regional contexts to their research. As archaeologists continually broaden their research agendas to include new interdisciplinary analytical and digital techniques within archaeology, GIS provides a unique platform to organize and analyze vast amounts of diverse archaeological data useful to create models of paleo-environment and archaeological sites.
