The Carrizo Plain National Monument contains some of the most significant heritage resources in North America. This includes the 100 Native American habitation and pictograph sites within the Carrizo Plain Archaeological District National Historic Landmark. Appropriate management is critical to the preservation of these sensitive resources. The results of GIS modeling can be directly applied toward a wide variety of historic preservation approaches. This presentation will describe the development of a site location predictive model for the CPNM and its direct application to resource management.
