Paper Abstract

A multi-discipline comprehensive archaeological study is being carried out to the well-known Chinese Emperor Qin Shi Huang's Mausoleum. In this paper, the research de- velopment and application of photogrammetry and remote sensing techniques will be des- cribed. In the project, the data and images were acquired by using the techniques of close-range photography,low-altitude photography and aerial remote sensing ( black-and-white and color infrared photography, thermal in frared scanning ). Several large scale present maps and orthophoto maps have been made as well as elevation drawings of different kinds of typical terra-cotta warriors, horses and weapons. In the area of known historical monuments, the inter pretation of remote sensing imagery made the de- tection be accurate upto 85%, while in the unknown area, it helped to make new archaeo- logical finds and to determine the range of flowing slopes. The operation procedures and methods for application of remote sensing technique in field archaeological work are stu- died and investigated.
