Abstract[EN] PHOTOGRAMMETRIC RECORDING OF THE OMEYYADE PALACE IN THE CITADEL OF AMMAN BY THE SPANISH ARCHAEOLOGICAL MISSION The Omeyyade Palace at Amman is an architectural ensemble from the 8th century built on Greek and Roman ruins. Today there remain important vestiges of the palace, including a throne room and, above all, an entrance hall, which are located on both sides of ancient Temenos. The photogrammetric work carried out by the Spanish Archaeological Mission in Jordan began in 1975, with a very thorough recording of the entrance hall at 1:20 scale. This involved three horizontal sections, recordings of the exterior walls and a dozen vertical sectional elevations. Afther three weeks at the site the plotting was carried out by the Service of Photogrammetry and Photo-interpretation of the Polytechnical University of Madrid. In 1978, during a second mission the rest of the palace and the vestiges of the fortified wall were recorded. Most important was the aerial recording of the palace zone and the entire surface area of the citadel of Amman, carried out by a specially equipped Spanish airplane. These aerial photographs were necessary to do the overall plan of the site. Following this mission the architectural plotting was carried out (39 plates on the whole) and photogrammetric plans of the citadel (1:1000 scale) and the palace area (1:200) were drawn up.
