CISA3 Archaeology

The Archaeology wing of CISA3 focuses on research concerning a broad and international range of subjects that utilize advanced information technology tools, cutting-edge telecommunications as well as digital imaging and display technologies for exploring the relationship between material culture and human behavior in the past and present. Consequently, the scope of our research ranges widely across time and space: geographically, it covers the entire planet; and chronologically, CISA3 projects extend from remote prehistory to the ethnographic present (as archaeology investigates human interaction with the environment an material culture through time). CISA3 Archaeology's current projects focus on analyses of large data sets, scientific visualizations, development of programs to analyze data, and applications of information technologies such as Geographic Information Systems (GIS). Our goal is to conduct projects that will appeal to academic researchers, government agencies, guardians of cultural heritage and ultimately anyone concerned with understanding material culture - past and present - as well as conserving it.
