the school which was held in Poznań in 2013 the next one is proposed. 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 LiDAR - innovative technology
for archaeology 2 (LITA2) to be held in Poznań (Poland).
The main aim of LITA2 will
be to understanding of practical methods for data capture, processing algorithms
and formal analysis of the results, as well as how LiDAR data can be used
to develop appropriate archaeological inferences. The course considers
LiDAR/ALS data and will be taught using a combination of lectures and practical
Aim of the school: understanding
of practical methods for data capture, processing algorithms and formal
analysis of the results, as well as how LiDAR data can be used to develop
appropriate archaeological inferences. The course considers airborne laser
scanning method. 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 LiDAR technology
for archaeology. It allows 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 understanding of the airborne
laser scanning technology for archaeology, understand the basic principles
underlying the method and be familiar with the most common applications
of LiDAR data and practical use of some dedicated software.
Travel, food, and accommodation
costs are the responsibility of the participants.
A wide range of accommodation
is available in Poznań. This map shows a selection
of hotels within easy reach from the Summer School venue (either a leisure
walk or a good bus/ tram connections). More hotels you can find here.
