Adopting a multi-method geomatics approach using cybercartography, a geographic information system (GIS) with fuzzy set theory, and remote sensing software, can overcome limitations encountered with isolated geomatics tools. Using Roman building practices as a test case, the strengths of each geomatics method were utilized to identify ideal locations for Roman fortifications. Cybercartography offered a flexible environment for collecting historical data, presenting research, and developing custom tools and educational aids for users. The combination of GIS with fuzzy set theory provided an improved analysis approach for developing a model of Roman building practices, and supported the successful identification of 36 known Roman fortified sites. Lastly the use of remote sensing software offered an extensive library for analysing multispectral satellite imagery, and was able to identify numerous crop and soil marks.
