The Archaeoinformant reports that Newhard, Levine, and Phebus (2014) presented a LCP model that incorporated both terrestrial and marine costs to assist in exploring the connectivity between places. Developed in ArcGIS ModelBuilder, the initial model was streamlined by Nicola Buescher, Christina Carmack, Caleb Whitaker, Zach Campbell and Thomas Mims. The model, now named AquaTerra, is available via GitHub as a Python script. The community is encouraged to comment, customize, and improve upon the current system as we move towards further improvements and development.
