Remote sensing is the acquisition of information about an object or phenomenon without making physical contact with the object and thus in contrast to on-site observation, especially the Earth. Remote sensing is used in numerous fields, including geography, land surveying and most Earth science disciplines (for example, hydrology, ecology, meteorology, oceanography, glaciology, geology); it.

"Remote Sensing in Archaeology, as the full title states, is an explicitly North American perspective. However, wherever you are located on Earth, do not let that dissuade you from reading this book.

It is, in fact, a much needed addition to the readily accessible literature on remote sensing techniques in archaeology. Remote Sensing – or Télédétection (French), Fernerkundung (German), Percepcion Remota (Spanish), 遙感 (Chinese) – can be defined as the science of identifying, observing, interpreting, and measuring objects or surfaces without coming into direct contact with them.

In the archaeological process, the scientific community has taken at least two different approaches to the definition of.
