AAIA Classical Archaeology Seminar
Andrew Wilson | University of Sydney
Spatial data has always played a vital, but sometimes contested, role in archaeological research. Using Zagora as a case study this presentation examines the transition from traditional to digital modes of data collection, interpretation and presentation. It considers some of the fundamental issues raised using spatial data and the process of adapting existing records and combining them with ‘born digital’ data. It provides examples of the use of the digital record and the advantages provided by integrating and interrogating different types of data in a digital environment.
Andrew Wilson is the Archaeological Collections Registrar for SOPHI and Vice-President of the Australasian Society for Historical Archaeology. Is GIS Projects Manager for Arts eResearch he devised and implemented the spatial data for many digital scholarly projects including Virtual Historic Sydney (at the Museum of Sydney), Digital Harlem, the Dictionary of Sydney, and the Macquarie Atlas of Indigenous Australia. He has developed GIS and GNSS applications on many archaeological projects in Australia and overseas.
