The relationship between history and GIS has existed in various fashions for years, yet it has been in the last two decades where these conjoined fields have expanded exponentially. GIS has allowed old things to be seen in new ways from rediscovering lost settlements with remote sensing, to recreating ancient cities in 3D design programs.For my talk on this subject, I will be discussing some historical projects that I have been completed and others that I continue to work on since transitioning into geomatics. This will be a focus on my 3D reconstructions of ancient cities and geostatistical analysis of pottery artifacts from an archaeological dig outside of Rome. I will conclude with leading into where and in what way history and GIS can continue to work together now, and into the future.
