Re: Remote Sensing

I just saw Nova science now yesterday and it sowed how they used satellite images to discover new Mayen archeological site. The accuracy was nearly perfect from what I could see.
But before you jump to any conclusions, you need to know that all Mayen site where build in limestone and it would seem that the dissolution of limestone affect surrounding vegetation in a detectable manner. This is most likely not the exact same case with different construction materials and different surrounding. I assume you would need to study similar known constructions and their effect on similar surrounding to those you are looking for before anything else.

Hi List ,
I am an archeologist and want to take multispectral pictures of plains with the hope of finding underground remainings of Hittite Kings Tombs.
And I want to give a gift to my vineyard owner friend for to follow vegetation health of his plants.
Another idea is to hoping to see the inside heat of the Achilles Tumulus near Troy in Turkey.
Etc Etc
I want to do this with taking many same area picture with different narrow band filters.and merge together with false colors
I got a list from the Landsat Satellite sensor and I learned that I need green , yellow and red filters .
And I need many diffrent IR filters.
Astrophotographers uses many different filters but they are specialised on deep sky or removing light pollution.
Who produces filters special for remote sensing ?
And I need to take different band IR photography . I need many IR filters .
Who produces them ?
Best ,
