Abstract

In recent years, particular attention to the use of airborne hyperspect ral sensors applied to archaeological research has occurred in Italy, where the MIVIS sensor has found large application proving to be a very impor tant complementary source of informat ion for archaeological goals. In this paper, the results of a research based in Aquileia (NE Italy) are presented. The spectral informative content of the MIVIS images is used to give prominence to the presence of ancient buried sites and structures on the base of the different spectral characteris tics of the terrains and the vegetation. Various treatment s and processing of the images are applied and their results compared in order to define the ones that better fit the different inquiries goals. Finally, the use of GIS technology provides and manages all the archaeological and topographical data necessary to eventually recognize the surface anomalies as ancient origin traces.
