Originální abstrakt

The paper deals with the possibilities of locating the archaeological sites using the expert GIS. Basis of the method consists in creating a simulation model of the locality in the GIS environment. The core of the model is an expert system, in which experience of experts in the field of archaeology are stored and which serves to adjust the model parameters. The expert system is designed as a geo-database, the attributes of which have fuzzy character. The individual model parameters are time and spatial dependent. The default data source is a digital terrain model of the examined locality which is gradually followed by application of spatial analyses. The model is developed in ArcGIS geo-database system using MS Access. Evaluation of the model is performed by the method of multicriterial analysis. The project aims to assist archaeologists in search of traces of the extinct civilization. The model is designed as a learning system, which means that after the successful localization of findings the parameters of the model will be corrected in accordance with the reality. The initial values of the model can be set in such a way that the model is applied to the location of known archaeological findings. The paper presents the design of an expert database system and its integration into the simulation model in GIS. Simulation experiments are evaluated in collaboration with experts in the field of archaeology. Final verification demonstrating the correctness of the model is confirmed or disproved by possible findings of archaeological artifacts in a given locality. The results of the model are presented in a specific location called Kocanov - an extinct village nearby Brno (Czech Republic).
