Workshop LiDAR – 17 September & 1 October 2021

Workshop LiDAR

Date: 17 September & 1 October 2021

Location: Online/on location

Credits: 1 ECT

Innovations in archaeological remote sensing are moving at a rapid pace, driven by the combination of powerful machine learning techniques, common use of UAVs (drones) with multiple sensors, and increasing availability of Open Source archaeological and environmental datasets. Knowing how to effectively manipulate remote sensing data and interpret them is, however, still challenging.

In this workshop you will learn about the state of the art in archaeological remote sensing, and get hands-on experience in working with the essential techniques needed for effective application. This includes machine learning approaches, data fusion techniques and 3D modelling. The approaches will be demonstrated by case studies from the Netherlands, Germany, and Cambodia.

Learning goals:

After this event, students will:

  • have acquired up-to-date knowledge about the state of the art in archaeological prospection using LiDAR and Remote Sensing.
  • have gotten hands-on experience in working with the following techniques.
