Summary

Compliance Report for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Geographic Information Systems modeling of Prehistoric Archeological Site Sensitivity at Wappapello Lake, Missouri.

Digital GIS data were used to generate two geographic information systems (GIS) sensitivity models for prehistoric cultural resources at Wappapello Lake to serve as a management aid to the Corps, St. Louis District. The sensitivity models statistically compared and correlated 11 modern environmental and geographic datasets with known prehistoric site locations and random point datasets. The first model (“Model 1”) encompassed the area within a one-mile buffer of the Corps fee property at Wappapello Lake, while a second, and final, model was generated (“Model 2”) exclusively within the Corps fee property. Based on statistical analysis, Model 2 appears to be the most appropriate model for local prehistoric sensitivity. A GIS data DVD included with the report contains all relevant GIS data for Models 1 and 2. Both models are completely customizable and can be modified and updated as new data are acquired.
