NSF renews funding for geospatial research

US: United States’ National Science Foundation has renewed its funding for the Spatial Archaeometry Research Collaborations Program or SPARC, an initiative at the University of Arkansas that acts as a national hub for geospatial research in archaeology. With the $277,264 grant, the programme provides funding for data collection in the field and lab analysis, along with research expertise for archaeological research projects that use 3D measurement, geospatial analysis and remote-sensing technologies. SPARC also helps researchers learn about spatial archaeometry, which measures properties of archaeological materials at all scales, including objects, sites and landscapes.
