ABSTRACT

Syria is enormously rich in historical objects related to many cultures. The most wellknown monuments in Aleppo are the Citadel, which is on tell in the city center, the Great Omayyad Mosque, and the historical souk Al-Madina not far from the Citadel. The Omayyad mosque is one of the oldest mosques in Aleppo, located in the district of al-Jalloum in the local Old Town, which was declared a World Heritage Site in 1986 and included into the list of the world monuments of UNESCO. Large areas of Aleppo´s valuable historical center were destroyed by the Civil War mainly between 2013 - 2015. We collected a set of satellite images which documented the destruction of this historical city. Our contribution is focused on the processing of satellite images, which can document very well the huge damage to historical city centre. All satellite images were processed by raster arithmetic, using classification (supervised and unsupervised – in this case by Isoclus) and like photos by classical interpretation methods.
