Dots & Dashes: Measurable Regional Activity on the Dashboard Heat Map

The Index of Texas Archaeology launched earlier this year with the aim of providing open access to the gray literature that results from archaeological investigations in the state of Texas. With this Texas-focused goal in mind, it is important for Stephen F. Austin State University to be able to illustrate that this collection of scholarship is particularly impactful in the local region. Indeed, looking at the heat map of the index’s readership, it is clear that most readers are coming from within the state, including from the Texas Department of Transportation, University of Texas at San Antonio, and the City of San Antonio.

You will find the heat map under the Countries panel of the Digital Commons Dashboard, which you can learn more about in this brief video, or by contacting your consultant at
