The main objective of this study is to determine main activity locations and correlation between different artifact types in an archaeological site with geographical information systems (GIS) and spatial data analyses. Knidian amphora workshops in Datça peninsula are studied in order to apply GIS and spatial statistical techniques. GIS capabilities are coupled with some spatial statistical software and spatial data analysis steps are followed. Both point and area datasets are examined for the effective analysis of the same set of spatial phenomena. Visualizing the artifact distribution with the help of GIS tools enables proposing hypotheses about the study area. In exploration part of the study, those assumptions are tested and developed with the help of explorative methods and GIS. The results are discussed and assessed in terms of archaeological framework. Finally the results are compared with the archeo-geophysical anomalies and excavation results.

An Embedded spatial statistics toolbox (R techniques) in open source GİS software (uDig)
Çavur, Mahmut; Düzgün, H. Şebnem; Department of Geodetic and Geographical Information Technologies (2016)
It is widely considered that geographic information systems (GIS) should include more spatial data analysis (SDA) techniques. The issues of which techniques should be included and how statistical analysis can be integrated with GIS are still widely debated. However, the typical software does not include all geospatial techniques. In this respect, this thesis focuses on the means to develop a framework which implements R spatial statistical techniques in the uDig GIS so that GIS and spatial statistical analy...
A framework to embed a spatial statistics toolbox in open-source GIS software: kernel density estimation example
Cavur, M.; Düzgün, Hafize Şebnem (2017-01-01)
It is widely known that geographic information systems (GIS) should include more spatial data analysis (SDA) techniques. The issues of which techniques should be included and how statistical analysis can be integrated with GIS are still widely debated. This paper focuses on the development of a framework that implements R SDA techniques in the uDig. For this purpose, a simple interface is designed between two open-source software applications, uDig and the R statistical software package. The tight coupling ...
Exploring the relationship between the socio-economic structure and some topographic variables in Çankırı
Dilekli, Naci; Düzgün, H. Şebnem; Department of Geodetic and Geographical Information Technologies (2004)
This study aims to develop a method to investigate the relationship between socio-economic status of village settlements and some topographic variables using geographical information systems (GIS) and spatial statistical methods. The study area is Çankiri province, a mountainous region that lays at the northeast of Ankara. 331 villages represented by areal units are used in this study. 195 variables are used to extract a single socio-economic status indicator. First, all the variables are divided under thre...
The cultic landscapes of Phrygia
Özarslan, Yasemin; Summers, Geoffrey; Department of Settlement Archaeology (2010)
This thesis examines Phrygian cultic sites in Western Phrygia from the perspective of landscape using a range of Geographical Information Systems (GIS) analyses. More specifically, it explores spatial relationships between these cultic sites and the regional geographical context with reference to certain environmental and cultural parameters. These include topography, geology, and distance to settlements, hilltop sites, and ancient roads. A total of 30 Phrygian cultic sites form the primary archaeological e...
Discovering fuzzy spatial association rules
Kacar, E; Cicekli, NK (2002-04-04)
Discovering interesting, implicit knowledge and general relationships in geographic information databases is very important to understand and use these spatial data. One of the methods for discovering this implicit knowledge is mining spatial association rules. A spatial association rule is a rule indicating certain association relationships among a set of spatial and possibly non-spatial predicates. In the mining process, data is organized in a hierarchical manner. However, in real-world applications it ma...
