ArcLand is proud to announce its first larger publication:
Rachel Opitz/Dave Cowley (eds.), Interpreting Archaeological Topography – Airborne Laser Scanning, 3D Data and Ground Observation. Occasional Publications of the Aerial Archaeology Research Group No. 5. Oxbow Books, Oxford/UK, 2012
The book comprises the actual state-of-the-art of dealing with LiDAR data for archaeology, written by some of the main experts in this field, many of them being partners in the ArcLand project. The volume will surely be an essential source of knowledge for many years!
The book is available from Oxbow Books!
