Module overview

Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is a process required in many countries to predict the consequences of proposed projects (e.g. construction) or policies (e.g. ground water management). This includes assessing the impact on cultural heritage assets. Within this module you will learn the methods used to evaluate heritage sites and landscapes using desk based approaches, including Geographical information Systems, Computer Aided Design, historical maps, national archives and remote sensing. The module will include detailed discussion of the requirements of the EIA process, standards adhered to and the roles of consultants, regulators and contractors within this process.
