The EU Project ArcheoLandscapes Europe organises the workshop RECOVERING LOST LANDSCAPES - Seminar and workshop on the applications of historic aerial images

Place: Belgrade (Serbia), Institute of Archaeology (SANU)
Date: 19.-20. November, 2013

The ArchaeoLandscapes Project’s Workshop aims to bring together scientists, developers and users interested in and working with historic aerial images to introduce and discuss the developments of related data processing procedures and various applications.

Motivation:
Large areas of landscape have been lost over the last century as afforestation, urban expansion, land use change and building of reservoirs, amongst others, have destroyed or covered historic landscapes and ancient monuments. Historic aerial imagery is a privileged source for documenting and understanding these lost landscapes since it provides information that cannot be found anywhere else. However, working with these images presents technical challenges, for example in ensuring metrical accuracy in the absence of calibration data or modern maps.
This ArcLand technical meeting will take place over two days. The first day of papers will present examples of working with lost landscapes in a seminar-style setting with a strong emphasis on discussion. The second day will be in a workshop setting, aiming to discuss solutions to technical challenges.

Event:
The 2-day Workshop aims to cover a range of seminars and a workshop to give practical experience to students and users. The plenary talk will be set by Dave Cowley (RCAHMS, UK) and the practical workshop will be led by Gianluca Cantoro (Foundation for Research and Technology of Greece, GR and Leiden University, NL).

Workshop target topics:
- Aerial imagery processing (data processing methodological issues and challenges, analysis, interpretation)
- Archaeological applications, applications of historic aerial images
- Archives of aerial photographs: accessibility, data availability and utilisation
