Workshop on Radar Imaging and Cultural Resource Management at the Angkor Eco-Site and Symposium on New Technologies and Global Cultural Resource Management
Report on a five-day roundtable on a radar imaging survey of the historic city of Angkor in Cambodia held in April 1996. A first roundtable on the same topic had been held in February 1995. The purpose was to report on archaeological and ecological findings emerging from data collected by the Space Shuttle Endeavour of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) in October 1994. The conference also addressed the broader significance of remote sensing technology for cultural resource management. The report contains abstracts of presentations on this topic. This project showed the utility of radar imaging in wet, tropical regions, which had not been demonstrated before. The report also describes goals and new directions suggested by the participants.
