Abstract. In archaeological research the exploration of archaeological monuments from the air has a long tradition and thus can be seen as a necessary component. At this point our project 'ArchEye' steps in as a cheap and ﬂexible method and also as a new way to document different archaeological areas and objects without using manned aircrafts.
