Abstract
Artifact locational, attribute, and image data from across North America provide a unique perspective from which to examine early settlement, and a source of data open to all, researchers and the general public alike. Since the last major update in 2010, a vast amount of new information has been collected and added into the database, refining our understanding of where artifacts have been found on the land- scape, sources of bias, and where more work needs to be done. PIDBA highlights an important and positive aspect of Paleoindian archaeology becoming increasingly common in the 21 st century, namely the shar- ing of primary data, and the examination of settlement at progressively larger geographic scales.
