Drones & Archaeology: use of UAVs to protect and manage archaeology in Scot...
Mon 22 February 2016, 10:00 – 15:30 GMT
This session is aimed at those who may commission or oversee the collection of archaeological data through the use of UAVs, or who may be approached for permission for others to use UAVs over sites. The morning session with David Connolly will cover the legal and consent aspects – David is currently working to get his license so is in an excellent position to advise on the do’s and don’ts of UAV use.
The day will also consider the different types of data and images that can be collected in this way, and the potential of data gathered by UAV. Matt Ritchie will lead an afternoon session on the use of UAV data for conservation and management, as well as interpretation and promotion.
