Ancient City - Application of Innovative Geoinformatics Technologies for the Study of Urbanization in Ancient Greece

The project seeks new horizons in the study of ancient Greek urbanism by integrating satellite and aerial remote sensing, geophysical prospection, and spatial analyses in Geographical Information Systems for understanding and reconstructing the complex history and development of the ancient Greek city.

The AncientCity project seeks new horizons in the study of ancient Greek urbanism by integrating satellite and aerial remote sensing, geophysical prospection, and spatial analyses in Geographical Information Systems for understanding and reconstructing the complex history and development of the ancient Greek city. This involves the use of digital applications to detect patterns in the ancient built environment, the identification of surface and subsurface features through non-destructive archaeological fieldwork and the creation of digitized thematic plans of ancient Greek settlements. Its ultimate goal is to incorporate technological advancements on a multidisciplinary platform within Mediterranean archaeological practice, while revealing and analyzing new archaeological data.
