The present study belongs in the field of Geoinformation's applications, that are related with the documentation, management, protection and promotion of Archaeological sites. The value of these applications in National and Worldwide level is obvious, because, the essential tools for the continuous follow-up and management of Cultural Heritage are offered. The monitoring of the remains of past human activities, especially when they are of complex form and cover large area, is more effective

The application of digital methods of processing, often of a large number of aerial photographs, gives the necessary outputs for the documentation of the historical sites. Of special interest is the case, where the aerial photography is used for the location of buried archaeological remains, which under the proper conditions, are best recognizable viewed from the air. On the other hand, the terrestrial photos are more appropriate for the documentation of man made constructions. The fusion of divers (aerial and terrestrial) data is a very interesting process because it offers an integrated product. This project has as object the digital photogrammetric process of aerial and terrestrial photos as well and the production of suitable products aiming at: • The documentation of an archaeological site • The localisation of buried archaeological remains • The application of virtual reality techniques aiming at the study and the analysis of archaeological landscape and of man-made constructions as well. Region of study is the Archaeological site of Philippoi Kavala's in N. Greece.
