Descrizione dell'insegnamento

Il programma dell'insegnamento è provvisorio e potrebbe subire delle modifiche

Familiarity with computers (at least at ECDL level)

The course aims to provide the theoretical and methodological background for skilful use of Geographic Information Systems  (GIS) in historical research contexts with a focus on archaeological applications.

The lectures and the exercises in front of a computer will provide students  with a  general overview of GIS technology . Students will be able to:

  • Utilize the core components and functionality of a GIS
  • Employ a variety of geospatial data types, data sources and metadata management techniques
  • Create, manipulate, query and analyze geospatial data

The course will consist   of lectures and  practical tasks to be held in laboratory

Following the new provisions to avoid coronavirus infection, it will be possible to take the spring session exams only in online mode (see for guidelines unisalento.it website).The following indications concern the traditional methods, which I hope will be able to resume as soon as possible.

a. Oral exam

The course aims to provide the theoretical and methodological background for skilful use of Geographic Information Systems  (GIS) in historical research contexts with a focus on archaeological applications.

This course will serve as an introduction to GIS technology  and its  applications to archaeological data management and analysis. Students will learn how to compile, transform, analyze and  present sources of archaeological and historical data, and will utilize this information in GIS for  cultural resources  interpretation and management.  References to selected research studies  in Classical Archeology will be provided.
