Archaeological Analysis

GIS is a versatile and highly adaptive technology that can be applied to virtually any field. From history to biology, from medicine to criminology, GIS makes data come to life, and we can help you find ways to make GIS work for you.

Archaeology Predictive Model

Soil types, available natural resources (waterways), and landscape conditions (topography) were used to create the Predictive Model in 2004. Washington College Field School students survey a plowed field to test the Predictive Model over several years.

This data is currently being analyzed to determine a variety of information. The size and number of new archaeological sites as well the range of sites in relation to the Archaeological Predictive Model zones will provide supporting evidence for the Predictive Model study.
