When ArcGis software enabled Python computer scripting language as a platform whereby users can automate tasks, edit and create new programs; it opened a door for archaeologists to enhance much of the work they do mapping, and performing spatial analysis. This session looks at the utilization of Python scripting language for automating a number of tasks which archaeologists do routinely, as well as other open source software and how its applications can lend new dimensions to the way we analyze space and record archaeological information in general.
