Use of geospatial techniques in maritime archaeology with reference to the Tamil Nadu coast
MetadataShow full item record
Geospatial analysis of shoreline changes at a particu-lar place includes topographic sheets, satellite image-ries and field data. The remains of maritime activities along the Indian coast have been traced dating back to the 4th millennium BCE. Subsequently, due to shore-line changes, many past habitations have been sub-merged in the sea or located far in the hinterland. Archaeological sites play a major role in determining palaeo-shoreline. The present article discusses the use of geospatial techniques in determining ancient coast-al habitations along the Tamil Nadu region of the Indian coast.
