ROAD Brochure - Applications 2-2018

In this second ROAD brochure, we focus on the practical applications that ROAD offers its users. ROAD provides a synopsis of prehistoric sites and cultures, opening up the deep past of humankind to further exploration. ROAD allows its users to compare, combine, analyze and visualize information about achaeological and paleoanthropological sites. We hope that ROAD will help scientists and the general public to better understand the wide spectrum of our cultural heritage.
