Lidar: An Introduction to Processing, Archaeological Interpretation and Mapping (North Duffield Conservation and History Society, 16th March 2020)

North Duffield Conservation and Local History Society present this one day workshop, likely to be in the North Duffield Village Hall. It will be hosted on the 16th March 2020, 10am to 4pm. Places are limited so please contact Brian at nduffieldhistory@gmail.com.
Abstract:
The use of airborne laser scanning is now as much the norm in archaeological investigation as assessing aerial photographs. Led by members of the Aerial Investigation and Mapping team of Historic England, this workshop outlines the basic principles behind lidar: how it works; the different types of datasets available; where to access it; and how to process and view it. The workshop also addresses using lidar in conjunction with aerial photographs, as well as learning how to interpret the data. Examples will be given of where lidar has been used with other aerial sources to map large landscapes or to generally better understand, research and address issues relating to heritage management.
