the direction of CSRM staff members.
Introduction to the Use of Aerial and Satellite Remote Sensing
For Archaeological Research and Management
> Course Info
This one-day course presented by CSRM and NASA will present those elements of remote sensing technology most relevant to archaeological research and site management. In doing so, it will review, using simple terms, the properties of electromagnetic radiation that govern the design of aerial and satellite remote sensors and sensor platforms, in particular the interaction of the bands of the electromagnetic spectrum used by these sensors with the atmosphere.
Armed with this knowledge, students will be much better able to select appropriate images, to understand how they might be enhanced in order to maximize the probability of a favorable outcome, and to conduct productive image classifications and other analyses.
Cultural Site Management Planning
This ten-day course is taught on-site to persons with site management
responsibilities. It presents the internationally-accepted site
management processes and standrads that apply to archaeological
and other cultural sites. It provides guidelines for site management
planning. Among key topics addresses are the essential standards
and data that provide the basis for site planning, determining site
carrying capacity, establishing management zones, public involvement,
site management unit organization, resource preservation through
streamlined site monitoring, maximizing benefits from interpretative
programs and tourism, and formulating effective site management
programs. Please e-mail Douglas Comer for more information concerning
