Abstract:

This project makes the benefits of an integrated, multi-sensor geophysical approach to characterizing archaeological sites accessible to those who provide cultural resource management CRM support to Department of Defense DoD installations. This project has 1 created ArchaeoFusion, a new user-friendly software program and 2 demonstrated and validated the cost and performance benefits of the approach and technology infusion tool ArchaeoFusion to DoD geophysical users, representatives of federal, state, and tribal Historic Preservation offices, federal and state resource managers, and other CRM practitioners. The project s demonstration and validation component included a multi-sensor survey of Presidio Los Adaes, a complex archaeological site that includes the subsurface remains of an eighteenth-century Spanish presidio located in west central Louisiana. The ArchaeoFusion software, a user s manual, and a guidance document for new and novice users are all distributed at no cost to DoD users by the Center for Advanced Spatial Technologies, University of Arkansas-Fayetteville.
