UAV SYSTEMS FOR PHOTOGRAMMETRIC DATA ACQUISITION OF ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITES

International Journal of Heritage in the Digital Era 01/2012; 1(1):7-14.

ABSTRACT The use of UAV systems for surveying archaeological sites is becoming progressively more common due to the considerable potential in terms of rapidity of survey, costs and accuracy. The paper presents the first results of the photogrammetric survey of the archaeological site of Himera in Sicily (Italy) using by UAV systems. A complete documentation of the site through the production of a DSM and an ortho image were carried out. The research further evaluated two different image processing workflows: a typical photogrammetric approach and a computer vision approach. An ortho image of the archaeological site with a very high resolution was obtained.
