The recent trend in spatial archaeology involves spatial analysis as much as it does the creation of inventories from field surveys. This paper therefore discusses the various digital methods being employed at the Sanctuary of the Great Gods on Samothrace with regard to data collection, post-processing, and management of temporally and spatially referenced data, which are organized in a geodatabase. The current topographic survey seeks to expand our knowledge of the existing terrain by producing a high resolution digital terrain model (DTM) using both total station and GPS. Standard and gigapixel panoramas are now being combined with existing scene photographs and aerial images. This inventory offers researchers and site managers a means to examine the site from a distance in both context and detail and the ability to detect change over time.
