Beginning with a conceptual approach to the representation of space adopted by GIS, this book examines spatial databases, the acquisition and compilation of data, the analytical compilation of data, the analytical functionality of GIS, and the creation and utilization of critical foundation data layers such as the Digital Elevation Model (DEM). The approach is light, technical detail is kept to a minimum, and the text is illustrated with worked case-studies using archaeological data. Spatial Technology and Archaeology provides a reference for archaeologists, students, professionals, and academics in archaeology as well as those in anthropology and related disciplines.
