Spatial Database to Spatial Knowledgebase: Predictive Modeling Challenges and Opportunities Across Time Space and Scale
This is an abstract from the "Wait Wait, Don’t Tell Me: What Have We Learned Over the Past 40 Years and How Do We Address Future Challenges" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.
Geospatial modeling of landscapes for predictive scientific research and hypothesis testing in archaeology has become an important approach in cultural resource management. This poster demonstrates the challenges and opportunities with using predictive geospatial modeling in cultural resource management on Federal lands. The GIS-based analysis of natural and cultural resources within the boundaries of the Francis Marion and Sumter National Forests will allow for reflection on survey methodologies over the last 40 years, reconsider some of the standard approaches to the use of extant data sources, and expand on our current understanding of contemporary landscape modification through time. These studies contribute to the growing reliance on quantitative geospatial modeling in the social sciences and how these practices may better address future challenges of protecting cultural resources.
