Use of lidar in heritage: EAC seeks your help!




The EAC has commissioned its Remote Sensing Working Group to produce guidelines for the use of lidar in heritage management across Europe. The guidelines will sit alongside the EAC Guidelines for the Use of Geophysics in Archaeology and provide an overview of the issues to be considered when commissioning surveys, processing and analysing lidar data. Rebecca Bennett will be working with Rachel Opitz and Chris Gaffney (EAC Remote Sensing Working Group Co-Chairs) to bring together stakeholders and examples of best practice from across the continent.


To build the network of practitioners and understand how lidar is currently used in the heritage sector, we are asking that each EAC member organisation take part in our short online survey via this link https://forms.gle/MANQgjc95YpDMSda9 Through the survey you also have the opportunity to nominate yourself or a colleague with special interest in this area who might like to collaborate with us: either by joining the EAC Remote Sensing Working Group and/or by becoming a point of contact for your organisation during the development of these guidelines over the next 18 months. The survey will remain open until midnight on the 6 June 2022 and we encourage you to share it widely to all interested colleagues and practitioners in your country. If you have any questions about the survey please email the working group on rebecca@pushingthesensors.com.
