Remote Sensing and Use of Unmanned Systems in Archaeology

Aerial imagery and more recently, remote sensing and use of unmanned systems, have become increasingly important tool in archaeology. RBG, or visible light imagery, has been the backbone of these techniques. However, developments in technology are now enabling improvements in photogrammetry techniques and more accurate tracking and positioning. Increasing miniaturisation of sensors is allowing much broader scope for remote sensing and data and process fusion is leading the way to viewing and analysing data in much greater depth. This can provide high resolution information otherwise difficult to obtain, and can also substantially reduce the time and cost of data acquisition.

Sue Wolfe of Callen-lenz will look at how some of these techniques are being brought together, and gives examples of novel approaches, both from a data collection and display perspective as well as analysis. the use, for example, of Digital Surface Models to provide automated topographical details and even field of view interpretation are discussed.
