Non-invasive drone applications for archaeology

Non-invasive archaeology techniques use drones technology to sensitively reveal the past, preserving the archaeological site. The disruption caused by human intervention is minimised, while the heritage is further preserved through 3D digitisation.

Aerial Surveying

Our drones are equipped with the latest airborne sensors and cameras that record high quality data and imagery for area assessment, exploration, and mapping.

Digital Preservation

Advanced software techniques allow us to digitally preserve archaeological findings in a 3D model with such high resolution that they can be used in education and further research.

3D Digitisation

The combination of latest drones technology, advanced  software and our technical expertise allows us to reconstruct full areas of heritage or archaeological sites in 3D digitisation or reality modelling.

“We are in the middle of a revolution in aerial survey for archaeology”

An aerial perspective produces immediate visual information that is not discernible from the ground. Even the most well trained eye of a specialist surveyor can miss outstanding features if the archaeology site is only surveyed at ground level.

Preserve the past, for the future.

Our heritage is held in trust for future generations and we can preserve it despite a wide range of threats. Insensitive development, neglect, climate change or even deliberate destruction – these are all part of our modern world. Thanks to drones technology and our innovative response, we can record our ancient world, keeping it alive for generations to come.
