Removed PROD[edit]

There is encyclopedic content here. Needs to be re-written or merged. FloNight talk 19:57, 15 February 2006 (UTC)


Perhaps this could be merged into Archaeology under Field methods? If that makes that section too long; a subarticle on field methods would appropriate. I'm not knowledgeable enough on the topic to do it myself. I'll hold off on the merge tags for now. Peyna 20:10, 15 February 2006 (UTC)

I left a message on GIS talk page for an opinion. FloNight talk 20:21, 15 February 2006 (UTC)

Oppose combining this article into GIS or Archaeology. If improved this article can stand on it's own. --Ray 11:12, 22 March 2006 (UTC)


Maybe this article should be re-namedto GIS in Archaeology. --Ray 16:01, 22 March 2006 (UTC)

Renaming would seem like a reasonable solution to me Silverthorn 16:35, 9 September 2006 (UTC)
Well, I'm just going to be bold and move it. If anybody has a serious problem with it, they can move it back. Grumpy444grumpy 00:43, 20 January 2007 (UTC)

Catchment Analysis[edit]

This section would probably work better titled 'GIS and Locational Analysis' given that the paragraphs below it mention not only SCA, but all the other current 'usual suspects' of GIS used analytically. I'll give it a few days and if no-one argues back will make the change (and edit the paragraph, which is a bit scanty currently). —Preceding unsigned comment added by BRahn (talkcontribs) 10:40, 20 September 2007 (UTC)

What is GIS[edit]

I mean, to non - archaeologist, how can someone from this article find out what is a GIS (in a non - comprehensive and easy to understand manner), and it's use in archaeology? THere should be a small introduction. Philosopher12 (talk) 09:20, 22 April 2011 (UTC)
