|dc.description.abstract||Archaeological 3D GIS provides archaeologists with a guide to explore and understand the
unprecedented opportunities for collecting, visualising, and analysing archaeological
datasets in three dimensions.
With platforms allowing archaeologists to link, query, and analyse in a virtual, georeferenced
space information collected by different specialists, the book highlights how
it is possible to re-think aspects of theory and practice which relate to GIS. It explores
which questions can be addressed in such a new environment and how they are going
to impact the way we interpret the past. By using material from several international
case studies such as Pompeii, Çatalhöyük, as well as prehistoric and protohistoric sites
in Southern Scandinavia, this book discusses the use of the third dimension in support
of archaeological practice.
This book will be essential for researchers and scholars who focus on archaeology and
spatial analysis, and is designed and structured to serve as a textbook for GIS and digital
