An Evaluation of Archeological Applications of Mapping Grade Global Positioning Systems - Document Cover

1999-03

In 1998, Dr. Robert H. Brunswig, Jr. undertook a preliminary field test and evaluation of emerging Global Position Systems technology for applications in archaeology. The results of that study suggest that there are a number of highly positive (and a few less positive) aspects to using GPS technology for assisting archaeologists in acquiring multiple data sets for archaeological research programs from the fundamental survey and inventory data collecting
phase to providing large-scale spatial data bases for regional landscape models.
