Abstract

A computer graphic technique, 3DPLOT, is presented. Its purpose is to identify occupational horizons in deep sites that have no visible stratification. The program treats the locations of subsurface artifacts in three-dimensional space as if they were in a clear matrix, rotating and tilting to any desired viewing angle. The benefits of this method are explained, and an example is presented.
