Digitalizing prospection areas. GIS applied to Archeology

We publish the second module (of seven) of the free ‘GIS applied to archaeology’ course, where you will learn to create geographic information through the editing tools offered by the open source software called ‘gvSIG Desktop’.

We will start by creating a new layer of information that will represent our prospection areas. In that layer we will create new geometries and we will fill its attribute table in with alphanumeric information.

We will also see how to add information to an existing layer using the ‘table join’ tool.

To follow these exercises you will start with the project created in the first module of the course, so if you have not done already we recommend you start there.

The data to follow the course can be downloaded compressed in a .zip file on this link.

Remember that for doubts about software use, carrying out the exercises, and problems that you find when carrying out the course, you can use the gvSIG users mailing list.
