Potential of satellite images and hyper/multi-spectral recording in archaeology

Summer School

July 30 - August 4, 2012
Poznań, Poland

Aim of the school: understanding of practical methods for data capture, processing algorithms and formal analysis of the results, as well as how remote sensing can be used to develop appropriate archaeological inferences. The course considers space-borne sensors: satellite images and hyper-/multispectral data. The course is taught using a combination of lectures and practical sessions. This course provides students with a detailed knowledge of the theory, method, equipment and software associated with satellite remote sensing in archaeology. It allows students to develop key skills frequently expected in landscape archaeology.

Upon completion of the course, the participants will have a fundamental understanding of the satellite remote sensing technologies in archaeology, understand the basic principles underlying the remote sensing n archaeology and be familiar with the most common applications of remote sensing technologies and practical use of some dedicated software.

..
MA and PhD archaeology students working on past landscape projects are invited to apply to join a training school on Potential of Satellite Images & Hyper-/Mulitspectral Recording in Archaeology (PoSIHRA) to be held in Poznań (Poland).

The main aim of PoSIHRA will be to understanding of practical methods for data capture, processing algorithms and formal analysis of the results, as well as how remote sensing can be used to develop appropriate archaeological inferences. The course considers space-borne sensors: satellite images and hyper-/multispectral data. The course is taught using a combination of lectures and practical sessions.

Travel, food, and accommodation costs are the responsibility of the participants.

A wide range of accommodation is available in Poznań.
