Talk: Archaeological landscape characterisation using LiDAR data

We invite you to the following talk, which is jointly organized by our research groups on photogrammetry and cartography (research seminar, CartoTalks):

Archaeological landscape characterisation using LiDAR data
by David Fairbairn
Newcastle University

The contemporary availability of high-resolution, high-accuracy digital terrain models sourced from LiDAR data collection exercises has allowed archaeologists and other landscape scientists to examine landscapes of interest in more detail and in a more quantitative manner.  This talk describes some initial examination of human-influenced (i.e. disturbed) landscapes in northern England from various periods in history, with reference to LiDAR-sourced data, and speculates whether it will be possible to use further non-geometric characteristics of the LiDAR data to derive additional information about such landscapes.  The methods of representation of such disturbed landscapes are also considered.
