Chimney Rock: an Analysis of Landscape using Terrestrial LiDAR


Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR), widely known because of its aerial survey applications, is a multifaceted technology that can be used in terrestrial platforms. Here we present a new interpretation on the internal organization of Chimney Rock Great House and its landscape based on the use of terrestrial LiDAR. We will address methodological and technical approaches to the use of terrestrial LiDAR in the recording and study of this historical and archaeological monument.
