Checking satellite image on site at El Hibeh.


Geosciences Management Institute


Making sense of an archaeological site that covers more than two square kilometers can be a rather daunting task.  When the team needed to get an overhead view of the features of the tell and the surrounding desert, one option was to purchase 1m. resolution satellite imagery from Ikonos.  Such data however can be quite expensive though.  Luckily for the El Hibeh team, Geosciences Management Institute stepped forward and offered to cover not only the cost of this visual information, but also many of the other technological expenses the team has met over the past few seasons.
