Rain Days

The job doesn't stop when the weather won't let us work outdoors.  There's cataloguing, data entry, and mapping to keep us busy in the office.

  1. Is that ArcGIS using a drapped DEM? I use ArcGIS in my job and I've always thought archaeolgy would suit it vey well.

    1. Same general idea - its an air photo draped on a DEM in Surfer. We build the DEM in the field using the total station so that its tied in exactly to our excavation grid. I like to check the data at the end of the day to make sure it all fits and on rain days I take it a little farther and play with overlaying our different excavation maps and air photos.
