The ArcLand workshop and training school "LiDAR - innovative technology for archaeology", organised by the Adam Mickiewicz University Poznan, Poland, took place from 24-28 June 2013. The workshop's timetabel can be downloaded here.
The workshop gave students understanding of practical methods for data capture, processing algorithms and formal analysis of the results, as well as how LiDAR data could be used to develop appropriate archaeological inferences. The course considered airborne laser scanning methods. The students were taught by using a combination of lectures and practical sessions. This course provided students with a detailed knowledge of the theory, method, equipment and software associated with LiDAR technology for archaeology (e.g.LAStools, LiVT). It allowed them to develop key skills frequently expected in landscape archaeology as well as management of archaeological heritage.
The workshop was attended by 15 students, mostly from Poland as well as from Romania, Montenegro and the Czech Republic.
The teaching experts were Rebecca Bennett, Simon Crutchley, Robert Shaw and Martin Isenburg, supported by Wlodek Raczkowski, Piotr Wezyk and Lukasz Banaszek.
