Urban Heritage Mapping: GIS Applications based Archaeological Explorations of Earliest Medieval Cities of Delhi

Niraj Kumar Singh [2] | Gaurav Kumar Pal

Abstract: Surrounded on two sides from the Aravalli ridge and river Yamuna on the third side, the landscape of Delhi provides a perfect setting for the evolution of an urban centre. Early rulers established the cities of LalKot and Qila Rai Pithora. The paper seeks to examine geospatial documents, the extents of Lal Kot and Qila Rai Pithora with the evolving change in the natural and anthropogenic factors leading to changes in the fort remains. Applications of Remote Sensing (RS) and Geographical Information System (GIS) are done in order to accurately trace the boundaries of the forts which was then used to conduct a field survey in order to trace and document the remains. In this context, the remains of these forts have been examined and given the historical importance which are in close proximity to the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Qutub Minar. This study establishes the extent and expanse of the historical monuments, urban settings, their protection status and natural habitats and cultures.
