Why this Blog?

This blog is instituted for the following purposes:

  • to serve as a place to bring together people interested in geospatial applications in archaeology
  • to foster open discussion and comment on topics of interest to the Interest Group
  • to serve as a resource for announcements of conferences, symposia, and other events and information of interest to the community
  • to assist in communicating the need to integrate geospatial applications within archaeological methodology and the study of the past, broadly defined

Authorial capacity for blog entries is granted to members of the Archaeological Institute of America‘s Geospatial Interest Group. The blog is administered by James Newhard and Tom Elliott.  Others interested in contributing content may submit posts to the administrators for review.

In general, our purpose is to have a healthy, open conversation about topics and ideas of mutual interest.  Most of all, to learn from each other and have fun.
