Identification of Painted RockShelter Sites Using GIS Integrated with a Decision Support System and Fuzzy Logic

  title={Identification of Painted RockShelter Sites Using GIS Integrated with a Decision Support System and Fuzzy Logic},
  author={Ruman Banerjee and Prashant Kumar Srivastava and A. W. G. Pike and George P. Petropoulos},
The conservation and protection of painted rock shelters is an important issue. Throughout the world, if unprotected, they are vulnerable to vandalism or to industrial activities such as quarrying. This research explores the integrated use of a Geographic Information System (GIS) with a multi-criteria decision support system and fuzzy logic to identify possible rock art sites over the Vindhyan Plateau in the district of Mirzapur, Central India. The methodology proposed compares results obtained…

GIS-Based and Statistical Approaches in Archaeological Predictive Modelling (NE Romania)

Archaeological predictive modelling (APM) is an important method for archaeological research and cultural heritage management. This study tests the viability of a new statistical method for APM.



Management of multi-modal data using the Fuzzy Hough Transform: Application to archaeological simulation

The proposed fusion of multi-modal data in the context of line detection with Fuzzy Hough Transform (FHT) gives a new tool helping archaeologists into their expertise and diagnostic processes.

Remote Sensing Based Identification of Painted Rock Shelter Sites: Appraisal Using Advanced Wide Field Sensor, Neural Network and Field Observations

Recent advances in remote sensing can map the lithological and geological parameters in a synoptic way and hence opens up new dimensions in archaeological research. This work delineates accurate

Integrating GIS and remote sensing for identification of groundwater potential zones in the hilly terrain of Pavagarh, Gujarat, India

In this work remote sensing, geographic information systems (GIS) and fieldwork techniques are combined in an attempt to identify groundwater potential zones in the hilly terrain of the Pavagarh

Integrated framework for monitoring groundwater pollution using a geographical information system and multivariate analysis

Abstract Appropriate assessment of groundwater is important to ensure sustainable and safe use of this natural resource. However, evaluating overall groundwater quality is difficult due to the


This paper proposes to visualize in GIS archaeological data and simulations obtained by merging this fuzzy information and applies the fuzzy Hough transform to those fuzzy multi-modal data to estimate their presence in accordance with given periods.

Detection of Neolithic Settlements in Thessaly (Greece) Through Multispectral and Hyperspectral Satellite Imagery

Although specific difficulties were encountered in the automatic classification of archaeological features composed by a similar parent material with the surrounding landscape, the results of the research suggested a different response of each sensor to the detection of the Neolithic settlements, according to their spectral and spatial resolution.
