Geography, ethnohistory, and natural resource research are combined for a complete site scenario. The cultural resource and environmental division of the Tribal Archives are fully accessible for a regional approach to archaeological survey. 

Tribal GIS combined with local regional government records are accessed in order to expedite projects. Local Native American Monitoring for projects has been conducted for many years within the tribe. 

The working relationship between the ARC research team and the local tribal most likely descendants (MLD) allows the archaeological survey to be performed while using the official consulting tribe for the region as referred to by the Native American Heritage Commission (NAHC) in Sacramento. 

This portion of the 1907 USGS topographic survey map is courtesy  of the American Geographical Society Library  at the UNiversity of Milwaukee Wisconson. Over 300 hard copy and digitized maps are available for heritage resource research. The dates of the maps range from early exploration to current resource GIS maps.
Tribal Monitoring and archaeological fieldwork performed at all elevation levels, near all types of geological features, and  in many soil types. Riparian as well as arid landscape survey may include a biological inventory. Soil seed banks are important archival materials.
