Abstract

Topographic and image maps of archaeological landscapes can be made using airborne LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) data. Such maps contain more three-dimensional data than conventional maps and may be more spatially accurate. In addition to providing a record of topography, LiDAR images may reveal surface indications of archaeological deposits unnoticed when using more conventional discovery techniques. LiDAR data and derived imagery need to be integrated with existing forms of archaeological data for their full potential to be realized.

Résumé

Résumé

Mapas topográficos y de imagenes de paisajes arqueológicos pueden ser hechos utilizando los datos de LiDAR (Sistema para detectar la distancia del radio de luz). Tales mapas contienen datos más tridimensionales que los mapas convencionales y pueden ser espacialmente más exactos. Además de proporcionar un registro de la topografia, las imágenes LiDAR pueden revelar indicaciones de depósitos arqueológicos en la superficie que pasan desapercibidos cuando se usa las técnicas convencionales de descubrimiento. Los datos LiDAR y las imágenes derivadas necesitan ser integrados con formatos existentes de datos arqueológicos para darse cuenta de su potencial total.
