Archaeological Overview Assessment

Archaeological overview assessment studies compile existing knowledge about recorded archaeological site locations, historical First Nations' land use, and cultural and environmental constants and changes in the area likely to affect site location. This information is used to build a model of where archaeological sites are expected to be located.

Archaeological overview assessments (AOA) cover a broad spectrum of studies ranging from the review of small properties to determine the need for detailed archaeological studies to forest district-wide mapping of archaeological potential to assist strategic and operational planning.

Archaeological Overview Assessment Layer: Studies, Reports & Metadata

The archaeological overview layer is viewable by authorized RAAD users and authorized B.C. government staff. Each AOA study consists of a report and maps showing areas with archaeological potential. Metadata pages for the individual assessment studies are also available.

Refer to the BC Data Catalogue for further information about the AOA layer.
