Droning on a Budget: UAVs, Aerial Imagery, and Photogrammetry for the Archaeologist (2017)

Citation DOCUMENT Thomas Whitley.

Recent changes to the FAA regulations covering the use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) or "drones" have clarified their use in both research and commercial operations. This paper is intended to provide an overview of low-cost entry into the use of UAVs for archaeological projects and considerations for applications in aerial imagery, videography, and photogrammetry. Using drones for documentation and interpretation is no longer uncommon, but it has been cost-prohibitive since the previous...


LA FOTOGRAFÍA AÉREA CON DRON COMO UNA HERRAMIENTA PARA EL REGISTRO DEL PATRIMONIO HISTÓRICO DE YUCATÁN (2017)

Citation DOCUMENT Luis Joaquin Venegas De La Torre.

Desde hace muchos años, la fotografía aérea ha sido de vital importancia para el desarrollo de la arqueología. Hoy en día, su uso es tan común que podríamos considerarla una herramienta elemental dentro del trabajo arqueológico, ya sea en la etapa de registro, excavación o análisis. El surgimiento de los Vehículos Aéreos No Tripulados (UAVs o drones), trajo consigo la capacidad de obtener fotografías aéreas de espacios o elementos específicos en poco tiempo y a bajo costo, generando mayores...


Mapping and 3D Modeling of Excavations Using UAVs, Photogrammetry, and LiDAR (2017)

Citation DOCUMENT Timothy Hare. Rebekah Vermillion. Madison Cissell.

Using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs/drones) to carry photographic equipment and photogrammetric processing of resulting data simplifies and accelerates mapping, 3D modeling, and environmental reconstruction. Construction and expansion of highways through Mayapán and the surrounding region are destroying valuable archaeological remains and environmental features. The 2016 field season targeted these areas for rapid recording and depended on UAV photography and photogrammetric processing for site...
