Mapping Ancient Landscapes

Racing against the clock as development encroaches on important Kurdish heritage sites, a team of landscape archaeologists deploys drones and comparative image analysis to capture previously undetected ancient settlements.  This project features research by Dr. Jason Ur and maps by Jeff Blossom, and was published as a chapter in a large format book GIS for Science: Apping Mapping and Spatial Analytics Volume 1 by Esri Press in 2019.  View the online resources to this book chapter, and the Mapping Ancient Landscapes story map.
