Dylan Davis is lead author on a paper titled, "Automated mound detection using lidar and object-based image analysis in Beaufort County, South Carolina." The article details his teams efforts to create algoritms and workflows for a computer system to identify mounds and earthworks. The results were stunning!

This is just the beginning for a system like this.
