About this session

Remote sensing comprises a range of techniques and technologies to record our physical heritage. This session shows examples of how you can record your cultural landscapes, archaeological sites, and historic buildings using case studies. The discussion will take you from aerial laser scanning to ground-based and hand-held scanning, and photography - and even suggest cost-effective solutions for digital recording using your phone. Remote sensing will provide you with a level of detail to manage changes, and facilitate interpretation, promotion, and education.
