GIS Exposes Site Formation Processes: Archaeology of the Fort la Perla
Authors: Kris Reinicke
Remnants of the 17th century Spanish Fort la Perla lie within a dynamic urban slum setting in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Digitizing and georeferencing historical maps, engineering plans, and aerial photographs, we are able to distinguish cultural site formations processes. Armed with this information, we can enter into the discussion of what should be done with the Fort. Esriís Story Map and ArcGIS Online are invaluable tools in the dissemination of information to interested parties.
