Cultural Resources Example: Petroglyphs


The Mi’kmaw petroglyphs Nova Scotia’s Kejimkujik and George lakes, one of Atlantic Canada’s most precious cultural resources, are slowly eroding. While the individual drawings and writings are well known, the spatial relation between the pictographs had not been documented. In 2008, the MAPS team undertook to digitize tracings of the petroglyphs and establishing the spatial arrangement within groups of drawings.
This will facilitate future research towards a contextual interpretation of the pictographs
