Our aim is to determine the structures after the surface survey in and around the Phoenix Ancient City and document the structures as specified scales.

This documentation is important to see the development process and the plan organisation of the city and also it will be used for the analyzes which will be done after the archaeological survey.

Beside these it will be a great base for the projects which will be developed in the future both in building scale and urban scale.

Measured survey and documentation will gain importance to transfer of the knowledge to the other generations especially if we consider the destruction of the existing structures.
