GIS-Based Automated Landform Classification for Analysis of Archaeological Sites

This poster presents the first results of an attempt to classify archaeological sites by landform analysis of the landscape. To make further use of modelled DEM-derived site catchments, it is possible to classify the relief to be able to compare the sites environment quantitatively. To achieve that goal, we implemented the TPI-based landform classification approach from Weiss (2001) in ArcGIS and applied it to a study area in Andalusia (Spain) to compare the results for various Solutrean sites. The applied...

Data integration for paleoenvironmental and archaeological GIS based analysis

A spatio-temporal data base integrating paleo environmental and archaeological data is presented in this contribution. The data base is developed applying a collaborative prototyping approach based on Semantic Mediawiki (SMW, Krötzsch et al. 2006) and OGC standards based Spatial Data Infrastructure technology. Time and space are the main integrating factors of the presented data base. The data is spatially integrated by its spatial extent. For GIS datasets this extent is present intrinsically. For data,...

How to exchange data between DB Systems on Early Humans. A case study based on the SFB 806 DB and the ROCEEH ROAD system SFB806 doi

In the recent past data base systems providing information on early humans and their environment are becoming more and more important and increase rapidly in number. However, this increase in different DB systems is concomitant with an increasing redundancy in the digital information stored in these database systems. Therefore, in this study we explore ways to reduce redundancies due to multiple storage of data and, hence, we show solutions to minimize the requirements to store and manage digital...

A semantic wiki as repository to review published palaeo-data in East Africa SFB806 doi Spatial

Our research interests in palaeo-studies in East Africa remain high, partly because of the Out-of-Africa hypotheses predicting Homo sapiens origin to be situated in East Africa. Since several decades archaeologists and geoscientists explore suitable sites to answer related questions. Simultaneously, analytical methods applied to the archives improved in their sensibility or resolution over the given time. The amount of published scientific data is enormous, but has to be carefully checked on their...

CRC806-Database: Integrating Typo3 with GeoNode and CKAN SFB806 doi

This Poster contribution for the 2nd Research Data Management Workshop, held on November 27th and 28th at the University of Cologne, describes the advancements of the new CRC806-Databse frontend. It was decided to update the system with some major changes to the overall architecture, by preserving the current API functionality and the URLs of the datasets in the database. This paper describes the system architecture of the upcoming version of the CRC806-Database. The SDI part of the system is migrated from...

GIS-basierte Distanzanalysen für die Modellierung von Einzugsgebieten prähistorischer Fundstätten SFB806 doi Spatial

Die Bewohner einer archäologischen Fundstätte müssen sich regelmäßig mit Ressourcen versorgen, dabei geht man davon aus, dass die Fläche die er dazu nutzen kann, durch seine fußläufige Mobilität begrenzt ist. Die Geschwindigkeit mit der der Mensch sich durch seine Umwelt bewegen kann, ist dabei, neben seiner physiologie, maßgeblich durch topographische Faktoren beeinflusst. Die Arbeit untersucht die Möglichkeit mit Hilfe von Berechnung der hangneigungsabhängigen Gehgeschwindigkeit Einzugsgebiete (Site...

GIS-based catchment analysis for prehistoric sites (Poster) Spatial

One of the main objectives of the Collaborative Research Centre 806 (CRC 806) is to capture the complex nature of chronology, regional structure, climatic, environmental and socio-cultural contexts in Europe during the last 190.000 years, by interdisciplinary research. This poster presents the first results of a collaboration between projects C1 and Z2 of the CRC 806 that aims to use SCA for sites from the Solutrean and Magdalenian on the Iberian Peninsula. Contribution to the overall research of the CRC...

Köppen-Geiger classifications of paleoclimate model simulations (Presentation)

The development and application of an algorithm to compute the Köppen-Geiger climate classification for CMIP/PMIP climate model data is described in this persentation. The classification algorithm is applied to data from the PMIP III paleoclimate experiments for the Last Glacial Maximum (21k yBP), Mid-Holocene (6k yBP) and the Pre-Industrial (0k yBP, control run) time slices. The input data was interpolated to infer higher resolution classification maps. The classification was implemented using Open Source...

Geoarchaeological site documentation and analysis of 3D data derived by terrestrial laser scanning doi

Terrestrial laser scanning was conducted to document and analyse sites of geoarchaeological interest in Jordan, Egypt and Spain. In those cases, the terrestrial laser scanner LMS-Z420i from Riegl was used in combination with an accurate RTK-GPS for georeferencing of the point clouds. Additionally, local surveying networks were integrated by established transformations and used for indirect registration purposes. All data were integrated in a workflow that involves different software and according results....

Forschungsdatenmanagement mit Open-Source-Software

Im Rahmen des von der Deutschen Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, geförderten Sonderforschungsbereich 806 (SFB806, wird eine webbasierte Forschungsdatenbank ( entwickelt. Der SFB806 ist ein Forschungsprojekt mit über 100 beteiligten Wissenschaftlern, das sich mit der Ausbreitung des modernen Menschen (Homo sapiens) von Afrika nach Europa befasst. Die SFB806-Datenbank erfüllt zwei Hauptaspekte: Zum ersten stellt sie eine Möglichkeit zur...

Building Research Data Management Infrastructure using Open Source Software doi

The implementation of a research data management infrastructure for a large interdisciplinary research project is presented here, based on well-established Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial (FOSS4G) products such as MapServer, MapProxy, GeoExt and pyCSW, as well as the (not primarily geospatial) open source technologies Typo3 and CKAN. The presented implementation depends primarily on the demands for research data management infrastructure by the funding research agency. It also aligns to theory...
