Plank, Simon and Strunz, Günter and van Ess, Margarete and Richardson, Penelope (2015) Monitoring of cultural heritage sites using VHR earth observation data. WorldView Global Alliance - User Conference 2015, 13.-14.Okt. 2015, München, Deutschland.

When the Islamic State (IS) was rumored in the media to have destroyed cultural heritage sites in Iraq and Syria – Nimrud and Palmyra – officials could not reach the areas in person to confirm the damage. Therefore, supporting the Orient Department of the German Archaeological Institute (DAI) remote sensing experts of the German Aerospace Center DLR processed and analyzed very high resolution (VHR) imagery to safely assess the situation on the ground. The VHR imagery was supplied by European Space Imaging (EUSI).
