Room 2009 Ruthven Museums Building Map
Over the past few decades, geospatial technologies have cemented themselves as critical tools for analyzing and synthesizing archaeological data. The number of geospatial techniques currently used in archaeology are numerous and wide ranging in their functionality. Within the ever expanding array and seeming accessibility of these technologies, it is important to ask, are we using these tools to bring new insights to bear on past social, economic, and ideological processes? In this talk, Dr. Howey explore this question through the context of her ongoing research in the northern Great Lakes region using geospatial technologies to advance nuanced examinations of past socioecological landscapes.
