GRAND JUNCTION, Colo., Sept. 25, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ProStar Holdings Inc., (“ProStar®” or “the Company”) (TSXV: MAPS) (OTCQX: MAPPF) (FSE: 5D00), a world leader in Precision Mapping Solutions®, is pleased to announce that Bluestone Archaeology, a non-for-profit, community interest company (CIC), has adopted ProStar’s precision mapping technology, PointMan®.

“We are pleased to announce that ProStar Holdings is making available its PointMan surveying software to help our excavation team accurately survey complex archaeological features using high-accuracy GPS satellite technology,” stated Stephen Baldwin, Director of Excavations. “The team is working with ProStar Holdings with the aim of adapting the PointMan for archaeological use.”

Bluestone Archaeology has been excavating a recently discovered coastal Roman Fort in Burscough, near Liverpool in the UK. Spectacular geophysics confirmed the site to be an auxiliary Roman Fort covering an area of around 5 acres (2 hectares). The fort is thought to be an invasion fort that held around 1,000 Roman soldiers and a cavalry unit that patrolled the hinterland of the fort.

“It is very exciting to see that PointMan adds tremendous value outside of our core business, including archaeology, where we can provide valuable results that will further the knowledge of the Roman military occupation of North-West Britain in the 1st and 2nd centuries AD,” stated Page Tucker, CEO of ProStar. “Our PointMan application is designed to precisely capture, record, and display the precise location of critical buried objects, and although our focus is critical infrastructure, there are obviously other valuable use cases that go well beyond that, including archaeology.”
