The main aim of AP3LM will be to understand practical methods of aerial photographs processing and formal analysis of the results, as well as how 3D modelling can be used to develop appropriate archaeological inferences.


Increasing conservation, understanding and appreciation of the archaeological and landscape heritage of Europe is the main aim of the ArchaeoLandscapes Europe project (2010-2015). Following this aim the teaching of remote sensing and landscape studies through courses for students and professionals become an important activity. Consequently, MA and PhD archaeology students as well as professional archaeologists mostly from Central Europe and working on past landscape projects are invited to apply to join a training school on Aerial Photographs and 3D Landscape Modelling (AP3LM) to be held in Poznań (Poland). The accurate documentation in 3D of landscapes is definitely one of the challenges in modern archaeological research. Digital photogrammetry is between the most quickly developing fields of research and it allows to translate historical or modern 2D photography in 3D point clouds.

The main aim of AP3LM will be to understand practical methods of aerial photographs processing and formal analysis of the results, as well as how 3D modelling can be used to develop appropriate archaeological inferences. 3D information can now be processed and produce new data or also 3D displays of items that may have been lost for any reason.The course considers data based on aerial photographs and will be taught using a combination of lectures and practical sessions. 

Aim of the school is understanding of practical methods for processing aerial photographs and formal analysis of the results, as well as how modern and archival aerial photographs can be used to develop appropriate archaeological knowledge. The course will be taught using a combination of lectures and practical sessions. This course provides students with a detailed knowledge of the theory, method, equipment and software associated with technology of air photo processing for archaeology. The school will provide hands-on experience and a preferable workflow for extracting three dimensional information from archive historical photographs and recently acquired ones, by means of free and/or open-source software. A panoramic of commercial solution will be provided as well, highlighting weak and strong point in both. It will allow students to develop key skills frequently expected in landscape archaeology as well as management of archaeological heritage. 

Upon completion of the course, the participants will have a fundamental knowledge of using aerial photographs, both vertical and oblique, for 3D landscape modelling to better understand past landscapes and their formation processes as well as practical expertise in the use of some dedicated software. 

Participating in the training school is free of charge but... travel, food, and accommodation costs are the responsibility of the participants.
