01/10/08 Presentation to the EARSeL (European Association of Remote Sensing Laboratories) 1st International Workshop on “Advances in Remote Sensing for Archaeology and Cultural Heritage Management” in Rome, Italy.


A paper was presented at the EARSeL conference by Anthony Corns which highlighted the application of technology in the capturing, modelling and disseminating archaeological landscapes information.Technologies discussed included: LiDAR, digital photogrammetry and terrestrial based survey to create detailed 3D models of archaeological monuments. The presentation included a brief introduction to the share-IT project and how the approach taken would benefit the archaeological research community

One of the aims of the workshop was to initiate the formation of a Special Interest Group (SIG): Remote Sensing for Archeology and Cultural Heritage (Re.Se.Ar.C.H.). The aim of this SIG is to foster communication amongst researchers interested in the application of active and passive Remote Sensing technologies (ground, aerial and satellite) and Information Technologies for archaeological investigation, protection and valorization of Cultural Heritage

The workshop was organised by Institute of Methodologies for Environmental Analysis and the Institute for Architectural and Archaeological Heritage of National Research Council , in collaboration with the Earth and Environmental Department and the Cultural Heritage Department of National Research Council, with patronage of CNR, UNESCO, MiBAC (Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities), University of Bari and sponsored by the European Space Agency (ESA) and BELSPO (Belgian Science Policy).
