 Identification of cultural heritage  and archeology assessment

 

Challenge ID:

HCP-4105

Originator:

Onshore: Hatfield

Title:

Identification of cultural heritage  and archeology assessment.

Theme:

ON 4.1: Environmental monitoring - Baseline historic mapping of environment and ecosystems

Consortium Lead:

RPS Group

Interviewed Company:

RPS Group

Geography:

ON.REG.00 - Generic onshore

Challenge Description

What is not possible / not adequately addressed at present?

Macroscale cultural archeological remnants need to be understood for social and cultural risk management and mitigation (e.g. tumuli in Algeria).

What effect does this challenge have on operations?

Important to ensure that operations manage environmental and social risks. The social license to operate requires no damage to culturally-sensitive areas.

Thematic information requirements:

Ortho base images

Terrain information

Topographic information

What do you currently do to address this challenge? 

How is this challenge conventionally addressed?

Consultation or prior determined areas.

What kind of solutions do you envisage could address this challenge?

Mapping of certain cultural features or sites using satellite images.

What is your view on the capability of technology to meet this need?

Are you currently using EO tech? If not, why not?

Many features are small, partially or fully buried, or only found through interviews with local populations. Potential further use of EO in archaeology; for example to detect soil compaction from previous settlements, or indirect assessment of potential f
