ADVANCES IN REMOTE SENSING FOR CULTURAL HERITAGE: FROM SITE DETECTION, TO DOCUMENTATION AND RISK MONITORING
12 - 13 November 2015 | ESA - ESRIN | Frascati (Rome), Italy
Remote-sensing is emerging as a key tool for both archaeology and the development and management of cultural heritage. For countries with fledgling sites and monuments records, it provides the only cost-effective means for locating and defining archaeological sites and landscapes. Remote-sensing, particularly its usefulness in providing regular and repeated imagery of less accessible areas, is also of unparalleled importance for monitoring the effects of climate change, urban and rural development, looting and conflict. Further to this, the data produced is providing an exciting opportunity to examine past human-environment dynamics.
The V EARSel (European Association of Remote Sensing Laboratories) workshop is organised by ESA and CNR (Department of Earth and Environment) and builds on previous workshops in 2008, 2011, 2012 and 2013. It will bring together experts in remote-sensing, archaeologists and cultural heritage specialists to address the key strategic issues of knowledge improvement and the sustainable management of cultural resources.
Chairs: Rosa Lasaponara, Volker Liebig and Francesco Sarti
The Workshop is free of charge for all participants.
Coffee breaks will be provided by ESA-CNR- EARSeL organization.
Participants are expected to cover all other expenses related to their participation (travel cost, accommodation, lunches etc.).
A selection of papers will be included in the workshop-based special issue to be hosted by MDPI Remote Sensing (impact factor 3.180)
