  12. 12. ArchaeoLandscapes Europe Expert Knowledge • Remote Sensing needs expert knowledge • RS is more than just pushing buttons • RS is more than buying data or even worse, their interpretation • Archaeologists often pay (technical) experts to do remote sensing for them • What they get as a result/product is often a filtered interpretation, knowledge, expertise & distribution based on the technicians experience • They don’t get the real data and even if so, many archaeologists wouldn’t be able to deal with thatRoman-Germanic Commission of the German Archaeological Institute www.archaeolandscapes.eu
  13. 13. ArchaeoLandscapes Europe Knowledge and its Spread • Expert knowledge about RS is not evenly distributed amongst archaeologists in Europe, nor world-wide • Acquiring RS data as well as dealing with that data in a sufficient way is not being taught with the same intensity and on a regular basis at universities all over Europe knowledge, expertise & distribution • There is still a lack of education in these methods in many parts of Europe and also in the rest of the worldRoman-Germanic Commission of the German Archaeological Institute www.archaeolandscapes.eu

  28. 28. ArchaeoLandscapes Europe Resume • Knowing that the use of all modern RS techniques and methods need skill, expertise and experience and being aware of the fact that these factors are not evenly distributed all over Europe (as well as in the rest of the world), the ArchaeoLandscapes Europe project, supported by the EU Culture 2007–2013 programme, aims for a better understanding and a more excessive use of modern archaeological surveying techniques as well as for an exchange of people, working in these fields, their expertise and of new ideas. • Moreover, we think that involving the public in various ways is conclusion an important aspect of our work, fostering an understanding as well as public support for archaeological remote sensing.Roman-Germanic Commission of the German Archaeological Institute www.archaeolandscapes.eu
