Drone use in archaeology continues to increase in popularity. In archaeology, researchers are using drones to increase orthoimage resolution, record aerial videos, and develop digital elevation models and point clouds. These new types of media play into the ever-increasing web of digital documentation of archaeological sites, features, and human landscapes past and present. It is a good idea as data stewards to form a better understanding of how we record data and how to apply the right technology for the application at hand. In this episode, we compare a few UAS units, to see how we can make better use of their capabilities while learning about the perks and possible limitations of available hardware.
