Satellite Images and GIS for Archaeology
Satellite images can be used as a methodological procedure for detecting, acquiring inventory, prioritizing surface archeological information in a rapid, accurate, and quantified manner.
Satellite images and GIS have become important tools for archaeologists and researchers due to the retrieving data from precise calibrated physical locations and integrate information drawn from multiple sources. Satellite imagery aids to identifying and analyzing archaeological sites that is recognized from the early days of aviation and is available from an array of highly sophisticated high-resolution satellite sensors that can provide greater details and benefits for investigating an archaeological site.

Satellite Imaging Corporation (SIC) supplies satellite image data for visualization of terrain conditions in three dimensions (3D) or Digital Elevation Models (DEMs), that are generated from stereo satellite imagery. A digital elevation model can be used to closely examine various terrain attributes, their influence on the movement of soil and nutrients, as well as the resulting effect on forest, plant, and wildlife productivity and distribution.
SIC provides specialized image processing technique by color balancing and utilizing the correct band combinations for Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) mapping techniques, our experienced imaging and GIS mapping team will isolate the terrain features and geological information needed for the correct analysis of your research project.
