Abstract

Horizon is a Geographic Information System (GIS) tool designed for archaeoastronomers investigating alignments of prehistoric monuments with astronomical phenomena (for example, rising and setting of the Sun, Moon and stars). It gets its name from its primary function, calculating accurate horizon profiles using Digital Terrain Model/Digital Elevation Model mapping data. More generally, it is a landscape visualisation tool which can generate full 360° panoramic scenes using 3D rendering techniques which may have some applications in the field of landscape archaeology.
