The remote sensing and geomatics facility is coordinated by the ICAC Computational Archeology research team and supports the archaeological topography and remote sensing work of the different research groups and scientific-technical services of the Institute.
This facilty includes a UAV (drones) operator and certified pilots with the ability to carry out flights throughout the European Union, even in restricted areas. It give technical support to remote sensing works, combining different types of sensors (Panchromatic, Multi-spectral, thermal and LIDAR) and using satellite images, aerial image repositories and images obtained with the UAVs themselves.
This facility provides advice on the application of remote sensing and surveying techniques in archaeological research. Likewise, staff in charge can carry out all kinds of surveys and graphic documentation to support archaeological fieldwork (including excavations, surveys and architectural studies).
- UAV operator, has devices equipped with photographic and thermal sensors
- D-GPS antennas for topography work
- Computer and software equipment for photogrammetry, aerial image processing, technical drawing and professional editing in 2D and 3D
