Abstract :
For the past few years scientists have been trying to find archaeological remains using Satellite Remote Sensing techniques. Some were luckyenough to find some new sites, others were not so fortunate even though they spent considerable amounts of money and time trying.
The goal of the University of Ghent's project was to look for a cheaper and more effective way to investigate archaeological remains from space, using the CORONA (keyhole) satellite imagery from the United States Geological Survey.
