DART Heritage Remote Sensing Horizon Scanning Workshop
School of Computing, University of Leeds, United Kingdom
Tuesday, September 17, 2013 from 9:30 AM to 4:30 PM
Aims & Objectives
- To provide an overview of the DART research advances and data outputs.
- To examine how DART outputs can be used by different stakeholder communities.
- To identify areas of development that build on DART.
- To influence future policy objectives, research directions and funding programmes that support similar approaches.

The Science and Heritage Programme and ArcLand have kindly provided bursaries to support attendance at this avent. These are aimed at students but open to all.
For an ArcLand grant please confer to the ArcLand grant rules and forms http://www.archaeolandscapes.eu/index.php/en/outreach/grants.html ("Grants for ArcLand technical workshops & fieldschools"). The deadline for grant applications is 12th August 2013, 12:00 h (Leeds time). Notification of acceptance/rejection of the applications will be given by 16th August the latest.
Please note that you can only apply for either of these grants, it is not possible to receive both an Science and Heritage Programme and an ArcLand grant!
The DART Project: Background
Detection of Archaeological Residues using remote sensing Techniques (DART) is nearing completion of a three year, Science and Heritage funded initiative. To examine the complex problem of heritage detection DART has attracted a consortium consisting of 25 key heritage and industry organisations, academic consultants and researchers.
Enhanced knowledge of archaeological residues is important for the long-term curation and understanding of a diminishing heritage. There are certain geologies and soils which can complicate the collection and interpretation of heritage remote sensing data. In some of these "difficult' areas traditional detection techniques have been unresponsive.
Over a 14 month period the DART project has intensively collected different geotechnical, environmental, geophysical and remote sensing data. The project team have analysed these data and started to develop a deeper understanding of contrast factors and detection dynamics. This workshop will share these results and examine ways in which they can be best used to improve research, practice, curation and engagement. We need your help to define outputs which will benefit the whole heritage community.
