Archaeological Survey through the use of Remote Sensing (LiDAR, Photogrammetry and Satelital Imagery) and GIS
The aim of this paper is to show how remote sensing (LiDAR, photogrammetry and satellite imagery), along with GIS are changing the ways in which archaeological resources are being identified, recorded, and researched. Traditional methods and techniques are not enough to prevent the potential risks that these resources face due to the accelerated pace of growth of a globalized world. Thanks to the development of Information and communications technologies (ICT), archaeologists now have a technological tool that will assist them in the better management of these resources. How these technologies can transform not only archaeological practice but also public policies in Mexico is a matter of concern that should be addressed. In this paper we present a couple of case studies (Palenque’s Signoury, El Tajín) in order to reach some conclusions about the use of these technologies in our discipline, it’s benefits, limitations, and recommendations.
