GIS applications in archaeology

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

    Abstract

    The diffusion of the use of GIS in archaeology has considerably increased in recent years. This multiplicity of applications is due mainly to the the growing interest of archaeologists in modern methodologies for the management of archaeological data, surveyed by topographic, photogrammetric and remote sensing techniques. GIS have become a fundamental tool for managing, sharing, analyzing and visualizing spatially referenced data and they are completely substituting the traditional techniques used by archaeologists, based upon filling out forms, graphics and other paper documents. Besides in the modern global society, dominated by mass media such as Internet, the issue of utilization has become more and more important, and most of the more recent GIS applications (Multimedia GIS, WEBGIS) take this aspect into consideration.
