Hello AMN'ers -
I'm researching predictive modelling of cultural values:
- sacred sites
- culturally modified trees
- monumental cedar
- archaeological potential
I've looked at several GIS models and methodologies but have not yet researched any in-depth.
Does anyone have any recommendations on models, criteria or other resources that can help predict cultural values?
I have a limited amount of field-surveyed data but am expecting to rely on assumptions about coarse data such as forest inventory, slope, distance to water, etc... By identifying areas of potential we can more effectively direct our field-survey crews.
If you have a similar project perhaps we can bounce ideas off each other.
Hope to hear from you, Lucy
