9th - 10th May 2013. From Known Knowns to Unknown Unknowns: Remotely Detecting the Past. Wood Quay Venue, Civic Offices, Dublin/Ireland.
Over the past few years the extent and quality of information available from satellites, airborne laser scanning (LiDAR) and aerial photography has grown exponentially. These techniques, collectively referred to as remote sensing, have had an enormous impact on our ability to reveal past landscapes and disseminate knowledge about those landscapes. The results of this work can be both visually exciting and intellectually engaging.
This two day conference brings together a series of speakers to showcase these techniques and the uses to which they can be put. This conference will specifically explore how remotes sensing and its results can be used within the sectors of:
- Heritage management and legislation
- Education including: secondary, third level and continual development
- Community heritage and citizen science
