Abstract

The assessment of the cultural landscape of a battlefield requires hindcasting a battle commander’s view of the terrain and situation. For World War ii-era battlefields such analysis has to take into account the influence of aerial warfare – the interplay between attacking aircraft and the siting of anti-aircraft guns. Using the case example of Kiska (Aleutian Islands), this paper describes an example of three-dimensional spatial visualisation used to examine the nature and capability of anti-aircraft guns on the Japanese base of Kiska.
