AHS is committed to using the latest technology for mapping cultural resources in the field. We use handheld units with integrated GIS and GPS technology, allowing us to provide sub-meter accuracy of mapped points.

AHS uses the latest version of Esri’s ArcGIS software to produce:

  • Shapefiles of project features and cultural resources for field use
  • Resource location maps
  • Archaeological site sketch maps
  • Georeferenced maps (project related CAD drawings, historic maps, etc.)
  • Archaeological site probability modeling
  • Project Geodatabases
  • Viewshed analysis
  • Various Spatial Analyses
  • LiDAR analysis of project area
