The Centre for Maritime Archaeology (CMA), School of Environmental Sciences, University of Ulster (Coleraine), Northern Ireland (UK) will be a new associated partner within the ArcLand Project, spreading our network to Northern Ireland where little has been done regarding remote sensing techniques like aerial archaeology so far. On the other hand the project can surely take advantage from the expertise of the Ulster colleagues in environmental research for archaeology, LiDAR scanning and the use of remote sensing techniques for underwater archaeology.
GROSSETO (ITALY), 29 August - 3 September 2011. The School aims to bring together young archaeologists and scientists, developers and advanced users from geo-informatics and related fields of application (photogrammetry, remote sensing, LiDAR, GIS, Cultural Heritage, architecture, environmental monitoring and mapping) to study and discuss the latest developments in digital recording and 3D modeling of complex objects and sites, with emphasis on those of Cultural Heritage value.
The school will consist of theoretical and practical lectures, data acquisition and processing, discussions and interactive labs. The lecture TOPICS will be: geomatics techniques for Cultural Heritage documentation, airborne LiDAR and terrestrial 3D scanning technologies, photogrammetry, remote sensing and 3D GIS in Cultural Heritage.
The LABS will deal with satellite and terrestrial image processing, 3D modeling, LiDAR and terrestrial 3D scanning data processing, 3D data handling in GIS environments.
Certificates of participation and ECTS credits will be delivered upon request and agreements with the organizers.
The REGISTRATION FEE of the school is 350 Euro and it includes the participation to labs and theoretical lectures, the material of the lectures, lunches, coffee-breaks, the welcome party and the social dinner of the event.
We are happy to announce that the ArchaeoLandscapes Europe project was able to expand its consortium and to add further associated partners to build up a growing network of experts and hubs to distribute expert knowledge all over Europe.
The connection with the "National Museum of the Faroer Islands" (FÃ¸roya Fornminnissavn; http://www.fornminni.fo) will contribute to develop the knowledge and raise the competence in using modern methods of recording, managing and publishing the rich cultural heritage of the Faroer Islands.
The "Landscape & Geophysical Services" from Ireland (http://www.lgs.ie) have been carrying out terrestrial and waterborne geophysical surveys since 1990, working with geophysical data from over 100 sites in Ireland, will contribute their expert knowledge especially in the fields of geophysical methods for heritage management and presentation.
The "Department of Humanities of the Dundalk Institute of Technology" (http://ww2.dkit.ie/schools_and_departments/business_and_humanities/humanities) will also contribute their expertise in various surveying techniques, especially dealing with lithic scatters, compared to the use of geophysical investigations. Together with "Landscape & Geophysical Services" they will organize a workshop in these fields to foster the spread of this knowledge of these topics in Ireland, especially amongst students and laymen.
Applications are sought for a UCD School of Archaeology, Archaeolandscapes Europe funded, full-time, 3 year PhD position. The PhD project provides an opportunity for a suitable candidate to develop a research topic centred aroundÂ the theme of the archaeology of Ireland's upland landscapes. For more information see >>
