UAV aerial archaeology

Project Description

Over the past few years the Institute has developed a strong expertise in the use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) technology and its implications on archaeological research. The institute currently owns 2 hexacopters and 3 quadcopters as well as a number of image sensors.

Every major excavation the Institute undertakes now includes UAV-based aerial archaeology as a key component, and UAV-derived aerial images are beginning to replace other aerial images in landscape survey and interpretation work at the Institute. For more information and consultation on UAV archaeology and its use at the Institute, contact Gísli Pálsson
