Months of entry
Geographical information systems (GIS) are transforming the way archaeologists handle spatial data. At the same time, there continue to be important advances in our ability to analyse and interpret spatial information. This MSc offers an advanced training in this field, drawing on the unparalleled concentration of expertise within UCL.
The teaching staff bring together a range and depth of expertise that enables students to develop specialisms including advanced UNIX-based GIS, spatial and temporal statistics, digital landscape survey, space syntax analysis and agent-based computer simulation.
Most practical classes are held in the Institute's Archaeological Computing and GIS laboratory. This laboratory contains two Linux servers, ten powerful workstations running Microsoft Windows 7, a digitising table and map scanner.
Students benefit from the collaborations we have established with other institutions and GIS specialists in Canada, Germany, Italy and Greece together with several commercial archaeological units in the UK.
