Bio
Dr. Terance L. Winemiller is a member of the Sigma Xi Scientific Research Society, the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi, and the Register of Professional Archaeologists. He has received numerous grants including National Science Foundation Grants, a William G. Haag Distinguished Paper Award, several Robert C. West Field Research Grants, research and equipment grants from AUM, and separate grants from Intergraph Corporation to develop courses in geographic information systems and promote faculty research in GIS at Auburn University at Montgomery. 
He has served as a Technical Advisor on the Governor’s Committee for Black Belt Improvement and speaks throughout the state on the geography of Alabama and Alabama’s Black Belt. Dr. Winemiller serves on the Editorial Board of the journal Mesoamerica. His primary research interests include Maya archaeology, settlement pattern research, cultural geography, mapping methods, and the application of remote sensing technology and geographic information systems in the study of anthropology, archaeology, and geography. 
Since 1990, Dr. Winemiller has studied and worked on various research projects in Belize, Mexico, and eastern Honduras where he combines archaeological and geographical methods and theory to understand ancient lifeways on the periphery of Mesoamerica. His most recent work involves the development of a 3D GIS for the site of Calakmul, Mexico, a World Heritage Site, in collaboration with the Universidad Autónoma de Campeche, the Belgian Science Policy (BELSPO) and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). Dr Winemiller is developing a 3D GIS based upon sonar data collected from the Bay of Honduras by colleagues from the Louisiana State University. He also is working with the Carnegie Institution for Science to convert maps prepared nearly a century ago to digital format for use in geographic information systems. He has co-authored publications in scholarly journals, and edited volumes, and co-organized symposia or presented papers at meetings of the American Anthropological Association, Society for American Archaeology, Conference of Latin Americanist Geographers, and conferences throughout Mexico.
