Abstract
For my project I collected data from various sources about the Moses Brown site. I then had to format and create other data about the site using various GIS processes including Geo-referencing and the formation of a Geo-Database. Finally, I was able to share said database and do basic analysis with the (now spatial) data to inform my professors where excavation should take place next year in order to find other foundational walls of the house.
