    5. Probing the past, predicting the future – developing adaptive strategies in mountain regions under future climates

  • Keywords

    GIS, spatial analysis, remote sensing, LiDAR, landscape modelling, photogrammetry, SfM, pattern recognition


The use of computational methods to acquire, analyse and model spatial data is commonplace in modern archaeology. However, the application of these methods to mountain environments require specific adjustments. In this session we will investigate the recent developments in geospatial technologies for mountain archaeology. We accept papers focusing on the use of GIS for remote sensing, spatial analysis and landscape modelling. We are also interested in contributions addressing the use of photogrammetry and airborne laser scanner for modelling land surface and detecting archaeological features.
