Evaluation of Corona and Ikonos high resolution satellite imagery for archaeological prospection in western Syria.

Beck, A. and Philip, G. and Abdulkarim, M. and Donoghue, D. (2007) 'Evaluation of Corona and Ikonos high resolution satellite imagery for archaeological prospection in western Syria.', Antiquity., 81 (311). pp. 161-175.

Abstract

Satellite surveys in Syria have made use of imagery recorded some 30 years apart. By comparing the earlier pictures (Corona) with the later (Ikonos), sites captured on the former can be accurately located by the latter. The comparison also reveals the stark implications for archaeology as large parts of west Asian landscape change from a state of ‘benign neglect’ to active redevelopment. Based on their experience in the Homs survey, the authors have important advice to offer in the design and costing of surveys using satellite imagery.
