Using LiDAR for Archeology.

Unearth hidden gems.

LiDAR technology has changed the face of archeology by making it possible to measure and map detailed landscapes that would otherwise remain hidden under centuries of vegetation.

But it doesn’t just reveal what is hidden: it can also document what has already been found.

It has transformed how researchers and archeologists approach unsurveyed land.
