Abstract

Contient : A view from across the water: the North American experience in archaeological GIS. - The use of GIS for archaeological resource management in France: the SCALA project, with a case study in Picardie. - GIS and archaeological resource management: a European agenda. - To be or not to be: will an object-space-time GIS/AIS become a scientific reality or end up an archaeological entity?. - Using GIS with non-systematic survey data: the Mediterranean evidence. - Flood dynamics and settlement in the Tisza valley of north-east Hungary: GIS and the Upper Tisza project. - Data recording and GIS applications in landscape and intra-site analysis: case studies in progress at the Archaeological Institute of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. - The spatial analysis of Bell Beaker sites in the Madrid region of Spain. - Prehistoric location preferences: an application of GIS to the Vinorský potok project, Bohemia, the Czech Republic. - Beyond GIS. - Perceiving time and space in an isostatically rising region. - GIS on different spatial levels and the Neolithization process in the south-eastern Netherlands. - Cumulative viewshed analysis: a GIS-based method for investigating intervisibility, and its archaeological application. - Some criteria for modelling socio-economic activities in the Bronze Age of south-east Spain. - The impact of GIS on archaeology: a personal perspective. - Scientific visualization and archaeological landscape: the case study of a terramarra, Italy. - Towards a study of ancient Greek landscapes: the Perseus GIS. - The potential of GIS-based studies of Iron Age cultural landscapes in Eastern Norway. - GIS applications at the Hungarian National Museum, Department of Information. - GIS and excavation: a cautionary tale from Shepton Mallet, Somerset, England. - Spatial relations in Roman Iron Age settlements in the Assendelver Polders, The Netherlands. - Another way to deal with maps in archaeological GIS. - Humans and PETS in space. - How to look good and influence people: thoughts on the design and interpretation of an archaeological GIS. - Future enhancements to GIS: implications for archaeological theory. - Toward an evaluation of GIS in European archaeology: the past, present and future of theory and applications. - Postscript: GIS, environmental determinism and archaeology Annexes : Includes bibliographical references and index.
