Following 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 sessions. 

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. Google search also offers a wide range of hotels plus valuable comments from customers.
