Un mese prima della partenza ufficiale del progetto, obiettivi e finalità di Mappa vengono presentate in anteprima alla Giornata di studi “Sotto la superficie – archeologia urbana a Pisa” tenutasi il 3 giugno 2011 al centro espositivo San Michele degli Scalzi (Pisa), organizzata dalla Virtual Heritage Network Italia in collaborazione con la Soprintendenza per i Beni Archeologici della Toscana.

Francesca ANICHINI / Gabriele GATTIGLIA, Italy: Archaeological predictive model of an urban area. The study case of Pisa, Italy
The Archaeoscapes strategic project aims to address the study and development of a semi-automatic (in the form of a demonstrator) for the production of probability maps of the presence of significant archaeological sites based on the joint processing of multi-sensor data sources of different nature. This system will be able to store, compare and manipulate data from these sources in a completely transparent way to the user. The demonstrator will show a set of layers that will provide information on historical data, physical characteristics of the area of interest and results of signal and image processing for cataloging and production of maps aimed at the so-called “predictive archeology.” The dataset will be converted and processed in the same Geographical Reference System.
Dutch archaeology has experienced profound changes in recent years. This has led to an increasing use of archaeological predictive modelling, a technique that uses information about the location of known early human settlements to predict where additional settlements may have been located. Case Studies in Archaeological Predictive Modelling is the product of a decade of work by Philip Verhagen as a specialist in geographical information systems at RAAP Archeologisch Adviesbureau BV, one of the leading organizations in the field; the case studies presented here provide an overview of the field and point to potential future areas of research.
The project proposal is the prediction model based on GIS for the prediction in the field of archeology. It is an interdisciplinary project in which these methods were used:
- Iteration number (prediction model outputs are compared with the results of subsequent research in the field and process prediction is restarted with the correct inputs)
- A multidisciplinary approach – cooperation experts from different disciplines (archeology, geodesy and cartography, computer science)
- Fuzzy model (GIS functions with blurred interface)
- Spatial analysis based on two-valued or fuzzy logic
- Expert system – making use of the expert’s skills in the evaluation and interpretation of partial and final results
CAA is an international organisation bringing together archaeologists, mathematics and computer scientists. Its aims are to encourage communication between these disciplines, to provide a survey of present work in the field and to stimulate discussion and future progress.
