The Netherlands is likely one of the few nations in Europe the place background specialists and land builders use predictive modeling to prevent destroying destiny archaelocial websites, even if many students examine the applying for this function hugely arguable.

By using a multi-criteria decision making framework (SIKB 2006), the results of the archaeological research are evaluated.

What we are waiting for is the moment that the more detailed predictive maps – which, due to the change in the law, will be drawn up by municipalities and initiators of large projects – will lead to a larger area of archaeological expectation areas with a low archaeological expectation value. And a larger surface area of these areas will mean fewer archaeological preliminary investigations and thus fewer supplementary commissions.
