Example text

LIDAR operates as an airborne system in which a laser beam is scanned across the land surface to provide detailed topographic images. There is therefore a growing range of digital remote imaging techniques, all of which are capable of revealing, to varying degrees, archaeological information analogous and complementary to that obtained by conventional aerial photography. The growing sophistication and availability of these Earth observation and ground imaging techniques has been driven by military and other agendas, such as environmental monitoring, and archaeological discoveries have been almost incidental curiosities.

Remote imaging 4 It is the reflection of visible light that allows images to be captured on aerial photographs taken from aircraft, as described, and now also from cameras orbiting the Earth on satellites. There are also reflections generated by ANDREW DAVID electromagnetic radiation at wavelengths that are invisible to the naked eye (and to most film emulsions), and optical-electronic sensors mounted on either aircraft or satellites can digitally record these. Thermal energy emitted from the Earth’s surface is also detectable.

Rather than attempting to interpret individual radar profiles, the time-slice method allows the data from multiple sets of successive profiles to be visualized together, allowing continuities of anomalous reflections to be recognized across a site. The profiles are first processed to maximize the display of significant reflections and then stacked together, interpolated if necessary, to create a three-dimensional volume of data; this can then be “sliced” horizontally by extracting the data from successive averaged “time windows” that allow two-dimensional viewing of different levels of the site.
