Archaeological Survey using Airborne Lidar

Overview

Archaeological survey using airborne lidar is a technique that has been added to the toolbox of the archaeological surveyor, and when used in the appropriate circumstances it can reveal archaeological remains in exceptional detail. This course informs historic environment professionals of the potential and practical use of lidar data and lidar-derived imagery for research and heritage management.

The course is designed for a professional audience, particularly those who are currently involved in research, fieldwork and the planning process and who are aware of lidar, but have little or no practical experience with its use.
