The final goal of any remote sensing investigation is the archaeological interpretation of detected features. Information is therefore required on the underlying archaeological landscape and shapes of potential archaeological features as well as a thorough understanding of the visible anomalies. The latter can be greatly assisted by computer applications, using image enhancement, feature extraction or multispectral classification. However, the final interpretation will have to rely on human interpreters who can include 'fuzzy' archaeological knowledge for a convincing analysis.
