GIS for Archaeology: introduction and practice

Frederico Munoz


Introduction to GIS, from essential concepts to technological aspects, using QGIS as the learning tool. While the concepts are general the use-case presented focus on how to create a geographical database from a list of archaeological sites and how to create a publication-ready image from DEM and vector layers and how to use some features that can be useful for the scientific inquiry (like line-of-sight).
Includes a module on using R that uses Watson Studio and a SparkR notebook to show a programmatical approach.
