Protecting Cultural Sites with Eos Arrow Gold

 

Artifacts hold many archaeological mysteries about the earliest inhabitants.
The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources (SCDNR)’s Heritage Trust Program was founded nearly 5 decades ago with a mission “to preserve and protect natural resources” including over a million acres and approximately 20% of which are found in coastal areas.

Now, the challenge that the SCDNR archaeologists face is how to rescue these un-excavated artifacts that are at risk of being lost to the ocean due to rapid coastal erosion.

Thanks to Eos Arrow Gold and Esri’s ArcGIS Field Maps that the Heritage Trust Program acquired for shoreline mapping. The mobile set-up made it possible for them to have real-time artifact data collection.
