Archaeological map of the Phlegraean Fields

1990 - 1992



This 1:1000 scale map was produced as part of the programme programme The mapping of the architectural heritage at high risk of destruction promoted in 1990 by the Ministry for the Cultural and Environmental Heritage.

The map is of the Pozzuoli area, which is about 400 hectares, and indicates all the archaeological sites which urgently need attention, including those of the ancient area of the Roman port which is at present underwater.

Produced by means of the stereo-restitution of the photograms taken during an ad hoc,aerial survey, and therefore very up to date, the map is indispensable for monitoring the state of preservation of the sites urgently in need of attention and can be used as the basis for work and evaluation projects.
