Digitizing lifts off

This is not the first or necessarily the best example, but it is cool: researchers at the University of Granada use unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) to photogrammetrize buildings. Or you can put other types of sensors on it….

from the press release: UAV and building.


At DigitalFossil 2012, Geert Verhoeven from Ghent University will give a presentation of how UAVs are used by archaeologists for mapping excavations. I can’t wait 😀
