Landscape Archaeology, in addition to classical disciplines such as geography, history, environment and human topics, improved the use and the integration of all new technological instruments by other documentary sources. Lidar is a new Remote Sensing technique recently adopted in archaeological research. Its main application is the study of any kind of archaeological feature causing a variation in surface elevation adopting 3D mapping with very high resolution and accuracy. The aim of this paper is to contribute to landscape reconstruction for two Medieval abandoned settlements in Basilicata Region (southern Italy) with an integrated approach taken from other technologies as remote sensing, data management and development of predictive models in GIS environment.
