Description

Oxbow says: Geoinformatics is an inter-disciplinary field of study that combines the use of information and technologies from GIS, GPS, satellite imagery, aerial photography, cartography, geophysical survey and photogrammetry. This collection of nine papers steers away from North Amercian and European case studies, to focus instead on the Caribbean. With studies from Barbados, St. John, Puerto Rico, Jamaica, Nevis, St. Eustatius, Trinidad and Tobago, the application of geoinformatics can be seen to have signified an important advancement in Caribbean archaeology, especially due to the increased threats to archaeological sites from urban growth, agriculture, mining, land erosion, and climatic events.
