Usefulness of Digital Data Capture Techniques during Fieldwork

October 4, 2011 § Leave a comment

One useful digital data capture technique is Differential Global Positioning System (DGPS) (see Indigenous perceptions of contact at Inthanoona, Northwest Western Australia). It allows for accurate geo-tagging of significant data points, whilst allowing the archaeological team to freely move around with only a small portable device (that also requires less power). This allows for a larger domain and quantity of results at a more efficient rate.

H.C. Nainwal, et. al. use Total Station Survey to identify “Temporal changes in rate of recession: Evidences from Stopanth and Bhagirath Kharak glaciers, Uttarakhand, using Total Station Survey” (link). Areas like the changing snout morphology were ascertained by monitoring it through field seasons (2005, 2006), and mapped with the help of Total Station and a contour map.
