Bringing together a diverse group of remote sensing specialists and anthropologists - including primatologists, paleoanthropologists, and Old World and New World archaeologists – this seminar will explore tools, techniques and methods derived from the geographic information sciences to describe, map, and analyze a variety of spatially distributed anthropological data. The key question that to be addressed is the following: What can anthropologists learn from sharing experiences and insights gleaned from recent advances in remote sensing and the geographic information sciences in order to more effectively collect, analyze, interpret and model anthropological data in all their geospatial complexity?
