Back by popular demand — a free , 2-hour class taught by former SAA President Fred Limp!
New developments in technologies for the measurement of form and space in archaeology: An introduction for students. This online workshop is free to SAA members and will be taught by Dr. Fred Limp, RPA. Dr. Limp has been involved in the application of geomatics methods to archaeology for more than three decades. He was the founder and director of the Center for Advanced Spatial Technologies for 18 years, and has taught numerous undergraduate and graduate and short courses on the topic.
Exactly 60 years ago Gordon Willey famously stated that the objectives of archaeology are “approached by the study and manipulation of three basic factors: form, space and time.” Since then we have seen the huge impact that improved technologies for the measurement of time have had on the field. We are currently in the midst of a similar revolution in the methods for the measurement of space and form. The workshop is designed as an introduction to these developments – providing an accessible review of the characteristics and uses of such methods as high-resolution GNSS, “laser scanning,” close range photogrammetry and related methods for the measurement of space and form of landscapes, sites, structures and objects.
