Finding Pyramids

During week 3 we identified possible pyramid locations in densely forested areas. The map included here shows area surrounding Angkor Wat it Cambodia. 

The supervised classification is based on false color infrared base raster image. Considering the base color band combination, any possible pyramid sites will be very difficult to spot, if not impossible. This is in part due to healthy vegetation overgrowing the ruins showing in the same shades and tones as all other healthy vegetation.
