Abstract


The goal of this work is studying the structure of the territory during the Bronce Age, in the province of Teruel, using GIS tools. So we have localized the most relevant archaelogical sites, and we have elaborated a database with the purpose of crossing it with the DTM from the IGN, corresponfing to the province of Teruel. With all this we have created in QGIS and gvSIG an Archaeological Information System of the area. Using the MDT we have calculated friction maps, with a doule objective: establishing an isotropic cost zone around each ones of the archaeological sites, and also establishing the more effective communication routes between them. The isotropic acumulated cost maps have been useful to create isochronic cost maps which allows us to have an approach to the catchment area of the sites. These maps are suitable for creating a more accurate image adding the topographic variable to the one given by the Thiessen polygons.
