Poverty Point Mounds, Maps, and Selected Results

The mound coordinates were refined in 2021 using LiDAR DEM point cloud data. Source: Atlas: The Louisiana Statewide GIS LSU CADGIS Research Laboratory In the maps folder, the LiDAR point cloud data is displayed using Excel graphs as image overlays. The new Mound A LiDAR determined datum, site code povpa, is two meters west of the datum popma determined in 2013 from a low resolution LiDAR map overlay only. Study results and placemarks include both datums because their proximity does not necessitate redoing previous intersite results.

These selected intrasite study results are tentative due to coordinate margins of error and the resultant low level of confidence in relationships expressed by such proximate locations, even when LiDAR DEM point data produces the coordinates used. A factor influencing my reporting of these intrasite relationships is the larger context of intersite results expressing the same ratios. Knowing Poverty Point has a phi relationship with Newark, Pachacamac, the immense Rio Branco geoglyph, and other monuments led me to further examine the phi relationship of Mounds B, A, and E, three monuments on the four mound meridian. Intentionality of Poverty Point's intrasite geometry is uncertain. Not only does an assumption of intentional spacing not follow just because a relationship is noticed, but with short distances margin of error is a significant proportion of any line or angle. Also, I cannot be certain the relationship noted is the intended one even if the spacing is intentional. With these very proximate mounds, the difference between expressing phi (1.0 : 0.618034...), eightthirteenths (0.6153846...), or the ratio of Earth and Venus orbits (1.0 : 0.615187), is less than the coordinates' assumed margins of error. Context is all important in archaeology. The Mound A to Mound B northsouth difference equaling earth's circumference divided by 61,813 informed my decision to include these results. Mound E has an eccentric highest elevation only slightly above the rest of the large platform, so the confidence level that povpe is an intended placemark is quite low. However, the high point of Mound E is due south of the apex of Mound B, a definitively circular mound with an obvious apex point, plus the Mound A to Mound E spacing is very near circumference divided by 100,000.
