|The use of GIS in archaeology has often been conservative, with archaeologists slow to adopt wider developments in geographic information science or geospatial technology. Support for 3D data in GIS is mature and yet the potential for representing and analysing geospatial data in 3D would appear to have caught many archaeologists by surprise. This talk will explore a series of case studies, including the Palace of Minos (Crete, Greece) and Blenheim Palace (Oxfordshire, United Kingdom), that highlight the rich tradition of 3D mapping in archaeology and will argue that the epithet ‘3D’ should be redundant.
