Local Event: SDCAS Lecture: It’s a bird! It’s a plane! Well… it’s sort of a plane.

Tuesday, November 25, 2014 at 7:30 pm. Los Peñasquitos Adobe. Los Peñasquitos Canyon Preserve. (Off Black Mountain Road, beyond Canyonside Community Park.)

Presented by Max Jewett, archaeologist at Burns & McDonnell in Denver.

Developments in Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) over the past few years have allowed for their use among non-experts and the rapid development, at relatively low cost, of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UASs) or drones. UASs use the UAV platform to carry a variety of sensors and payloads. One of the most important developments coming from this technology is the ability to collect aerial photos for photogrammetry at relatively low cost. A survey area on the San Diego coast is part of a much larger effort by the Society for California Archaeology in conjunction with the San Diego County Archaeological Society to map cultural resources at risk of damage by climate change. Mapping these areas will aid in the identification and evaluation of at-risk sites. Max Jewett, archaeologist at Burns & McDonnell in Denver, will discuss the uses of UASs during the project and the data that they contributed to the overall results.
