The North American Database of Archaeological Geophysics (NADAG) is a database and website that aims to promote use, education, communication, and knowledge of archaeological geophysics in North America. It is maintained by the Center for Advanced Spatial Technologies (CATS) at the University of Arkansas at: http://www.cast.uark.edu/nadag. Most North American archaeologists have little knowledge of geophysical methods or of their large potential to archaeology, and their level of use in projects remains low.  The NADAG project aims to elevate awareness of these methods.

The Final project report describes work undertaken in NADAG within year 2 of the project, which specifically focused on (1) increasing the number of geophysical studies held within the databases, (2) annotating biological citations, (3) enhancing educational materials offered, and (4) promoting links to NADAG worldwide. The state of the NADAG database and website as it currently exists is summarized, with (1) more than 300 geophysical studies, (2) more than 1,500 bibliographic citation  (of which more than 300 are annotated), (3) more than 50 pages of educational materials, and (4) a good level of use of the website, which about 4,100 hits averaging about a dozen per day. The principal Investigator and CAST plan to continue expansion and maintenance of this website.
