Check out this article from MSNBC for an interesting application of remote sensing. The article highlights the fact that remote sensing can be an excellent tool for locating historical sites that cannot by detected by ground. The arrows in the image below show the outlines of the pyramids.

If you're interested in this topic, here is an excellent paper by Dr. Armin Gruen from ETH on "New Technologies for Efficient Large Site Modeling."
