This paper sets out the research work carried out by the Unit of Palermo University within the FIRB 2003 National Programme, directed to the compilation of an archaeological base map of the Roman site at Elaiussa Sebaste. The employed methodology is based on the use of high resolution satellite imagery; particularly, a QuickBird image was used. A GPS survey was carried out in September 2008, aimed at determination of ground control points and spot heights used to georeference the image and to construct the DTM respectively. At last a digital orthophoto of the archaeological area was compiled from the acquired data.
