by Frederick Institute of TechnologyJan 01, 2008

Numerous applications have been developed, in particular for land management, such as agriculture, forestry, land use and land cover and the management of cultural and natural heritage areas. The satellite images provide the only possibility for the mapping of the heritage areas because of their instant availability and high resolution. This white paper highlights the beneficial use of satellite remote sensing for the monitoring of cultural heritage sites in Cyprus. The methodology adopted for the cultural heritage sites monitoring uses precise location of such sites, assesses nearby land-cover changes and produces up-to-date information, which is presented in this paper.
