SPARC (Spatial Archaeometry Research Collaborations) is an NSF-funded program at the Center for Advanced Spatial Technologies (CAST) of the University of Arkansas dedicated to promoting geospatial research in archaeology. SPARC offers direct support to archaeological projects through awards in three categories:
SPARC is now accepting applications for summer Fieldwork and Data & Analytics awards (target project period of May through October 2014).
Fieldwork awards support on-site data collection and analysis for archaeological field projects. Successful applicants will receive free use of equipment and software, the participation of SPARC staff members to assist with data collection, as well as post-fieldwork consultation and data processing.
Data & Analytics awards provide support from SPARC staff in the preparation, processing and analysis of geospatial datasets. Awards can support, for example, the preparation of aerial and satellite imagery or the creation of a regional GIS in advance of an archaeological survey. Awards can also support advanced processing of data including geophysics, terrestrial scanning, or photogrammetric images, in order to draw out details and subtleties in the dataset or to integrate them with other data.
The deadline to submit applications is the 15 December 2013.
Applications can be submitted through the project website: http://sparc.cast.uark.edu.
