HomeVisualizing archaeological data: GIS mapping and network modeling

*  *  *

Published on Thursday, November 18, 2021 by Céline Guilleux

Summary

Archaeologists use different methods for visualizing their data – for analysis and for presentation. The international spring school will discuss successful ways to visualize these data and challenges and successes in the application of both GIS and network analysis (NA). Through an integration between theory, studies, and tutored practice, we aim to access the two learnt methods to each participant for independent use.
