schema:description"Spatial analysis is the archaeology of space and place and is concerned with the creation of a cultural landscape focusing on archaeoastronomy, geoarchaeology, and ancient landscapes. Incorporating emerging technology such as GPS positioning and new forms of diagnostic imaging, spatial analysis can enable scientists to study the wider landscape of ancient human settlements. The ability to peer through time and clearly view the distribution of settlements and particular landforms, and to determine resource areas, provides researchers with invaluable information regarding the social relations, economy, and ecology of any community in the distant past. The papers were selected from the 34th annual Chacmool Archaeological Conference, designed to examine human interaction with the environment, both physically and cognitively."
