Remote Sensing in Archaeology. XI Ciclo di Lezioni sulla Ricerca applicata in Archeologia (Certosa di Pontignano 1999)

The volume contains the texts of the reports of the XI cycle of lectures on research applied to archeology, Remote Sensing in Archeology. In fact, remote sensing has legitimately become a cornerstone of archaeological research and an irreplaceable basis for every GIS and spatial analysis application (as well as for the elaboration of risk maps and predictive models), characterized by continuous technological evolution. Technological innovations in the field of remote sensing constitute the core of the lessons, but they are kept away from mere specialism. Both the structure of the school and the articulation of the interventions are characterized by a precise didactic approach. In particular, the most treated element is Remote Sensing, i.e. acquiring information on an object without directly coming into contact with it, and specifically the active and passive sensors sensitive to electromagnetic energy, acquisition techniques, data processing / interpretation and direct control of interpretative keys.
