Article
Full-text available
Digital elevation models derived from airborne laser scanning have found worldwide applica-tion in archaeology and other disciplines. A key feature that makes these models so valuable lies in their capacity to represent micro-relief features indicating traces of past human activity. While detection of these often faint traces in vegetated areas ben...

This paper presents the results of an archaeological survey of the fort on East Lomond Hill, where at least five lines of defence are identified. Reinterpretations and some new questions are raised, and space is also given to the methods used to create the plan that draw heavily on 3D data. Recent excavations at the site have indicated activity fro...

NB This is not the final version of the publication. For final published version go to: https://doi.org/10.1002/arp.1780 While airborne laser scanning (ALS) data is a key resource for studying afforested landscapes, other datasets are essential to understanding the character of surveyed areas, and for assessing the reliability of the remote sensed...
Article
Full-text available
The characteristics and form of heritage data are fundamental to its utility in a range of applications, particularly so for heritage agencies who have a remit in management, policy, and the creation and curation of national databases of monuments, sites, and landscapes. Written from the perspective of an archaeological survey function in a nationa...
Book
Full-text available
EN|PL This publication explores a complex landscape south of Polanów, and its transformations over the last few centuries. The area is rich in early and late modern earthworks which have been investigated through various archaeological prospection methods. Recognising that the forest is a dynamic and complex entity, the impacts on archaeological di...
Chapter
Application of remote sensing techniques in archaeology makes both the detection of new features and the rethinking of previous results possible. Additionally, integration of heterogeneous datasets provides better means of understanding past landscapes. However, similarities between anthropogenic structures and natural landforms hamper interpretati...

Article
Full-text available
Application of airborne laser scanning (ALS) for archaeological purposes allows for identification of relief features. Unless the detection is automated, the recognition of archaeological objects in the observed dataset is bounded by the interaction between human mind, eye and visual phenomena that are displayed on the screen. To improve effectiven...
Article
Full-text available
While the National Record of the Historic Environment (NRHE) in Scotland contains valuable information on more than 170,000 archaeological monuments, it is clear that this dataset is conditioned by the disposition of past survey and changing parameters of data collection strategies over many decades. This highlights the importance of creating syste...

Full-text available
This paper aims to present an urgent need to improve the current practice of the Polish heritage agencies regarding the application of airborne laser scanning in heritage management and site monitoring. In Poland, alike in many other countries, a vast high-resolution lidar dataset has been produced since the data was captured for flood and other ri...
Chapter
Full-text available
Within Polish archaeology, ancient settlement patterns have been traditionally based on the field-walking survey outcomes. As a result, in the vicinities of Polanów, and many other local communities alike, concentrations of the identified archaeological sites are being separated by regions in which neither a single potsherd nor any piece of other m...
Thesis
Full-text available
Zasadniczym celem pracy jest identyfikacja relacji zachodzących pomiędzy aplikacją zaawansowanych technologii w archeologii a możliwościami interpretacyjnymi dziedziny. Zostaje on osiągnięty poprzez rozpoznanie konsekwencji, jakie dla niejednorodnych studiów nad przeszłymi krajobrazami niesie wykorzystanie danych przestrzennych pozyskanych metodą l...

Banaszek Łukasz, Przeszłe krajobrazy w chmurze punktów [Past landscapes in the point cloud]. Poznań 2015. Adam Mickiewicz University Press. Seria Archeologia nr XXX. Pp. 382. ISBN. ISSN. Text in Polish with a summary in English. The main purpose of this book is to identify the relationship between the application of Airborne Laser Scanning (ALS) in...
Article
Full-text available
Abstrakt Airborne Laser Scanning (ALS) is an advanced method of archaeological prospection. One can easily spot an increasing number of applications of LiDAR data within Polish archaeology. Due to that fact it is important to understand the prospective potential of the method as well as subjective character of generated information. The aim of thi...

Full-text available
Within the framework of a project “Remote sensing of archaeological landscapes of the Land of Sławsko” non-invasive archaeological examinations were carried out. They made use of Terrestrial Laser Scanning (TLS), geophysical and electrical resistance survey methods, as well as of interpretations of aerial photos and analyses of historical maps of f...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The aim of this paper is to present aspects of Web Map Servers usage in archaeological interrogation. Currently, archaeological spatial information is inefficiently collected and archived in paper form. Furthermore heritage offices rely on fragmentary and outdated archaeological data, and due to organizational problems providing a proper heritage p...

Project
The project explores landscapes of Pomerania, and their transformations over the centuries.
Project
This project explores aspects of using various remote sensing data and techniques for archaeological survey.
Project
Project explores methods to expedite large area survey and foregrounds remote sensed (RS) data. It aims to produce systematic and consistent archaeological information, improve the evidence-base for conservation, management and understanding, and considers how to leverage proliferating remote sensing data.
