Summary
"The use of archaeological remote sensing applications to address academic and applied research problems is growing at a tremendous rate in North America. Fueling this growth are new research approaches using innovative instrumentation technologies and data collection methods. Increasingly, researchers pursuing these new approaches are integrating remote sensing data collection with theory-based interpretations to address anthropological questions within larger research programs. This work is a must-have, up-to-date volume for today's archaeologists. The book includes numerous applications of remote sensing in North American contexts that exemplify the methodological developments and increase of theory-based archaeological remote sensing interpretation and presentation theoretical developments that have occurred since 2006. It covers the major remote sensing methods and their integration with relevant technologies such as geographic information systems (GIS) and GPS. Targeted to practitioners of archaeological remote sensing as well as students, this suite of current and exemplary applications adheres to high standards for methodology, processing, presentation, and interpretation"--Provided by publisher
