Abstract

Geodetic Stations and Differential Global Positioning Systems are the dominant instruments for mapping in archaeological contexts. However, there are not equal counterparts for cave archaeology survey. There is no way for DGPSs to work inside a cave and use of geodetic station is limited only in relatively dry and wide parts of the caves. This paper is reviewing the current available applications on cave mapping and it is presenting the use of Heeb's Paperless Mapping technique as a mainstream survey tool for subterranean archaeological projects. Ultimately a step by step methodology is proposed.
