OCA uses GPS, GIS, and remote sensing for all the projects we perform each year. Remote sensing also has been a critical aspect of Cultural Resource Management for the discovery of archaeological sites and mapping of current ground surface conditions. OCA sees the development of in-house remote sensing expertise as an additional improvement in our spatial data collection sophistication which is crucial to keep OCA competitive with private sector archaeological firms.
