4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By J. Moran on August 28, 2009
Format: Paperback
This book covers some fundamentals in GIS and archaeology. It goes from case study to case study, illustrating how someone could use GIS for their own sites. It's an okay read but for those of you who already know GIS (even at an introductory level), pass this book on as there is little you can learn from it.
