Virtual Survey: a semi-automated tellspotting algorithm

"Following the observation that prehistoric and early historic settlement-mounds (tell settlements) in parts of the Near and Middle East can be recognized in the SRTM 90m terrain model (Sherratt, Antiquity 2004, see also Tellspotting on ArchAtlas), it seemed a good idea to develop an algorithm to do this automatically, using current techniques of computer modeling."
