Drone Mapping and Photogrammetry at Brandon House 4

Drone Mapping and Photogrammetry at Brandon House 4 As consumer-grade drones have become increasingly sophisticated and readily accessible, their potential for noninvasive archaeological site investigation has become evident. The Brandon House 4 case study evaluates the consistency of drone photogrammetric output with conventional site maps, whether geographic information systems (GIS) processing of that imagery improves analytic insight, and how such approaches can aid noninvasive site investigation. Field tests demonstrate the cost effectiveness of drone aerial photography, particularly when used with semiautonomous flight planning software. More significantly, when enhanced using GIS the scaled and georeferenced photogrammetric output aids interpretation of archaeological sites and features. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Historical Archaeology Springer Journals

Abstract

As consumer-grade drones have become increasingly sophisticated and readily accessible, their potential for noninvasive archaeological site investigation has become evident. The Brandon House 4 case study evaluates the consistency of drone photogrammetric output with conventional site maps, whether geographic information systems (GIS) processing of that imagery improves analytic insight, and how such approaches can aid noninvasive site investigation. Field tests demonstrate the cost effectiveness of drone aerial photography, particularly when used with semiautonomous flight planning software. More significantly, when enhanced using GIS the scaled and georeferenced photogrammetric output aids interpretation of archaeological sites and features.
