Using Drones for Survey with Kyle Olson - Ep 96

Archaeology and Technology.jpg

We talk about drones a lot on this show. And for the record, they're officially called UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) or UASs (Unmanned Aerial Systems). What we don't often talk about is the nuts and bolts of actually using a UAV in the field.

Today we have a guest, Kyle Olson, who was on a team that used a DJI Mavic Pro to conduct aerial survey and mapping in central Asia. But, the article doesn't necessarily talk about the results of the survey. They instead talk about HOW they did the survey and what worked and what didn't. That's what we need more of.

So, take a listen and give us your feedback.

Implementing a Tablet-Based Recording System for Ceramic Classification - Ep95

Archaeology and Technology.jpg

Many people are writing papers about "going digital" and the results from doing so. However, not too many are writing about the effects of going digital on a crew. For example, do people work better together or separately when recording artifacts with a tablet. On today's episode we talk to the authors of a paper about going digital on a project in Peru and how recording ceramics was changed by using tablets.

Digital Field Archaeology Apps - Episode 69

ArchaeoTech-1 2017.jpg

There are a lot of options out there and no standard answer to the question, "What do you use to record digitally in the field?" Fortunately, Chris and Paul have some experience with this and Chris has worked on two apps for site recording in the field. We talk about the progression from fillable PDFs all the way to custom applications on today's episode. This is good material even if you're already recording in the field.
