ARCA2606 - Maps, Time and Visualisation

Semester 2, 2013  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Dr Ian Johnson


This unit examines ways in which maps, timelines and other forms of data visualisation are constructed and used to present archaeological data and historical argument, and how digital methods and web delivery have facilitated the use of visualisation and enabled greater user engagement through interaction with online databases, encyclopaedias, collaborative systems, maps, timelines, animations and 3D models. Practical sessions offer students the opportunity to become familiar with simple techniques and software tools for creating and publishing visualisations on the Web.
