Editorial Reviews

Review

From the book reviews:

“This book explores the research potential and use of remote sensing technologies and analysis in archaeology. … the volume contains 22 chapters ranging from historical descriptions to technical treatises and comprehensive case studies that emphasize the research value of geospatial technologies and remote sensing data. … Overall, the book is a great reference source for archaeologists―geospatial novices and aficionados alike―interested in leveraging remote sensing and geospatial analysis in their work.” (Wetherbee Dorshow, Journal of Anthropological Research, Vol. 70, 2014)

From the Back Cover

Mapping Archaeological Landscapes from Space: In Observance of the 40th Anniversary of the World Heritage Convention offers a concise overview of air and spaceborne imagery and related geospatial technologies tailored to the needs of archaeologists.  Leading experts including scientists involved in NASA’s Space Archaeology program provide technical introductions to five sections: 1) Historic Air and Spaceborne Imagery, 2) Multispectral and Hyperspectral Imagery, 3) Synthetic Aperture Radar, 4) Lidar, and 5) Archaeological Site Detection and Modeling.  Each of these five sections includes two or more case study applications that have enriched understanding of archaeological landscapes in regions including the Near East, East Asia, Europe, Meso- and North America.

 

Targeted to the needs of researchers and heritage managers as well as graduate and advanced undergraduate students, this volume conveys a basic technological sense of what is currently possible and, it is hoped, will inspire new pioneering applications. Particular attention is paid to the tandem goals of research (understanding) and archaeological heritage management (preserving) the ancient past. The technologies and applications presented can be used to characterize environments, detect archaeological sites, model sites and settlement patterns and, more generally, reveal the dialectic landscape-scale dynamics among ancient peoples and their social and environmental surroundings.  In light of contemporary economic development and resultant damage to and destruction of archaeological sites and landscapes, reflexively nurturing advances in applications of air and spaceborne technologies in archaeology is a matter of wide utility and a particularly appropriate goal at the 40th anniversary of the World Heritage Convention.
