Abstract

Central Anatolia represents a big resource for archaeology from III millennium till Chalcolithic period, with particular importance for Hittite's history. Some archaeological sites, as Kuşakl Höyük, well known from sources, are not yet excavated. To reach the aim of a geomorphologic and historical-archaeological reconstruction of the area, advanced technologies such as the satellite photogrammetry have been utilized. The use of GeoEye-1 stereoscopic images and two GPS and archaeological surveys allowed the creation of the new topographical-archaeological and geologic-geomorphologic maps of the area at a scale of 1:10,000. A detailed Digital Elevtion Model (DEM) has been created, allowing ancient landscape reconstruction and ancient paths networks analyses in a very important area of Hittites empire. Remote sensing techniques have been applied to the orthocorrected GeoEye-1image for the individualization of buried remains through automatic and phointerpretation techniques. The cartographic preparation and the setting for printing have been carried out in accordance with standard national rules and recent international guidelines for representation and generalization. This map will constitute an useful tool for the preservation of several archaeological sites spread over a 100 km² area.
