Anthropology, Space, and Geographic Information Systems
Major advances in the use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) have been made in both anthropology and archaeology. Yet there have been relatively few published discussions of how GIS can be used to approach and solve complex problems in substantive research. This book will bring together users of GIS in these fields to describe research that was either too difficult - or impossible - to achieve using any other tools. The text will be divided into a general section on theory followed by sections on application in cultural anthropology, archaeology, paleoanthropology, and physical anthropology.
