PhD researchers

For the last 2 years YouGIS have been in collaboration with some PhD researchers in Archaeology regarding the production of illustrations and figures for the final thesis.

Different types of graphics have been created: location maps, geology maps, terrain digital elevation model, site distribution maps, aerial photo maps using Google and Bing data source.

Sometimes, because of the different CRS (Coordinate Reference System) datasets required to be converted to the project CRS.


Also several charts have been produced based on the type of site, bedrock type, time frame etc.

All datasets used during the project are free of charge and available on line. Open source software has been used to produce the figure under the GNU GPL licence.
