Geographical Information Science lies at the heart of much of the work of VISTA, extending between two-dimensional mapping and data basing, to complex modelling and visualisation. GIS provides the basis for integrating, interrogating and communicating complex and diverse datasets. VISTA staff have considerable experience and expertise in the application of GIS and its integration with other spatial technologies.
Recent GIS-based projects have included the Predictive Modelling of Archaeological Site Locations in Raised Mires, using palaeoenvironmental modelling to 'red-flag' areas of greater archaeological potential, whilst other projects have utilised GIS to map the future effects of climate change.
