 ArcLand Conference "From Known Knowns to Unknown Unknowns: Remotely Detecting the Past"

9th - 10th May 2013
Wood Quay Venue, Civic Offices, Dublin

Over the past few years the extent and quality of information available from satellites, airborne laser scanning (LiDAR) and aerial photography has grown exponentially. These techniques, collectively referred to as remote sensing, have had an enormous impact on our ability to reveal past landscapes and disseminate knowledge about those landscapes. The results of this work can be both visually exciting and intellectually engaging.

This two day conference brings together a series of speakers to showcase these techniques and the uses to which they can be put. This conference will specifically explore how remotes sensing and its results can be used within the sectors of:

    Heritage management and legislation
    Education including: secondary, third level and continual development
    Community heritage and citizen science
