Territorial analysis of archaeological sites: Raster geoprocessing and Digital Elevation Models. GIS applied to Archeology

We are now reaching the end of the course about GIS applied to Archaeology. At this module you will learn to apply raster geoprocesses and use Digital Elevation Models to perform the territorial analysis of archaeological sites.

If you haven’t done the previous exercises, we recommend you to start with the first module.

We remind you that the data to follow the course can be downloaded in a compressed .zip file from 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.

Module 5. Territorial analysis of archaeological sites: Raster geoprocessing and Digital Elevation Models

Module 1: Preparation of an archaeological project

Module 2: Digitalizing prospection areas

Module 3: Analysis of prospection results: Vector geoprocessing

    Good day! Do everything as in the video. After surgery Density (kernel) does not appear layer “Ard_site_Zurich[Density]. What am I doing wrong or missing tools in the program?

  2. Sergey says:

    A file with an extension is created .rmf. It is not recognized by the program.

      Hi Sergey, are you saving the output layer in a folder where its path has spaces? In that case try to avoid spaces. It’s usually a problem with raster files.

  3. Sergey says:

    Good day, Mario! With by storing the output layer all right. I work on a laptop Dell G3 3579 c operating system Windows 10 pro 17134. 4 files must be created (.prj,.rmx,.tiff,.tif). Only one is created .rmf. Did the same on a desktop computer and on Windows 10 pro 17763 – everything turned out as it should. Maybe the problem is plugins, settings, drivers?
