Archaeological Application of Thermal Imagery Sensors on Drones

Today I read an interesting article on the use of drones for discovering archaeological sites. Drones equipped with thermal imagery sensors, were able to find kivas (ancient spiritual structures) located in the New Mexican desert, based on differences in heat retention from beneath the surface. The article also discusses the potential that drone based LiDAR can provide the field of archaeology.

If you’re interested in remote sensing, archaeology, or drones, take a minute and read the full article on The Atlantic’s website, here.
