Wired: Indiana Jones meets Google Earth: GlobalXplorer lets you hunt for hidden heritage sites
A new Web site aims for crowdsourced archaeology. “You can now be an archaeologist from the comfort of your own home and help preserve the world’s hidden heritage sites in the process. Sarah Parcak has released her GlobalXplorer software, described as ‘Indiana Jones meets Google Earth’. Professor Parcak hopes it will be used by amateur archaeologists to help unearth vital sites using high-resolution satellite images.” The GPS / mapping data for each site is NOT disclosed; the idea is to getting more eyes to look at potential sites, while protecting those sites from nogoodniks.
