Geospatial analysis

ArchaeoLines

The ArchaeoLines plugin displays any combination of declination arcs most relevant to archaeo- or ethnoastronomical studies.

Artifact_Class_Diversity

Estimates artifact class diversity in multiple geographic regions.

chrono_spatial_modelling

This is an example implementation of chrono-spatial modelling of settlement activities.

ede_interpolation

A QGIS 3 plugin for spatio-temporal interpolation of archaeological settlement evidence.

FuzzyViewshed

ArcGIS toolbox for fuzzy viewshed calculation.

leastcostpath

Provides the functionality to calculate Least Cost Paths (LCPs) which are often, but not exclusively, used in archaeological research. This package can be used to apply multiple cost functions when approximating the difficulty of moving across a landscape, as well as taking into account traversing across slope and other costs such as landscape features. This package also provides functionality to validate the accuracy of the computed LCP relative to another path.

mpvecost

Provides the facility to calculate non-isotropic accumulated cost surface and least-cost paths using a number of human-movement-related cost functions that can be selected by the user. It just requires a Digital Terrain Model, a start location and (optionally) destination locations.

pathAAR

R Package to reconstruct paths using archaeological monuments, model parameters of infrastructure and evaluate those parameters, model parameters of infrastructure and evaluate those parameters.

QGIS-topographic-networks

Models relationships between elements in a terrain model, connecting pixels according to their height difference.

QGIS-visibility-analysis

Calculates visible surface from a given observer point over a digital elevation model. The plugin is intended for more complex modelling, such as the depth below the visible horizon or generation of intervisibilty networks between groups of points. It is particularly performant for multiple viewshed calculations form a set of fixed points.

senscape

A toolbox for modelling human perception of topography for QGIS, based on QGIS viewshed module.

TRANSIT

GIS toolbox for estimating the duration of ancient sail-powered navigation.
