UAV-based Remote Sensing meets Archaeology

Sebastian d’Oleire-Oltmanns (Department of Geoinformatics – Z_GIS) was recently invited to give a presentation on UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) based remote sensing to scientists of the Archeoinformatic Forum at the University of Innsbruck, Austria

The Forum is run by Dr. Sandra Heinsch, Dr. Walter Kuntner (Department of Ancient History / Archeology of the Middle East & Central Asia) and Hansjörgg Ragg (Department of Geography). 
Z_GIS @  Aegina, Greece 2012

Sebastian  demonstrated the advantages of UAV-based remote sensing for archeological disciplines and provided insights in this new advancing field of research. Aerial photography, 3D surface modeling (with a resolution of 2-5 cm) and aspects of digital data acquisition for archeological excavation work were discussed in detail.

Z_GIS is looking forward to collaborating with the Archeoinformatic Forum in the future.
