Small-Scale LiDAR Approaches to Iowa Archaeology

Thursday, September 14

The Archaeology Program Series will introduce Louisa County residents to various aspects of archaeology and dive into the fascinating prehistory of our county. 

The series continues with "Small-Scale LiDAR Approaches to Iowa Archaeology" on Thursday, September 14 from 6:00 - 7:00 pm at the Columbus Junction Civic Center (ICN Room). 

This talk discusses the use of Light Detecting and Ranging (LiDAR) as applied on small scales to various sites across the state. LiDAR technology is a maturing approach in the fields of archaeology and cultural resources management. Unlike some traditional field methods, LiDAR offers a number of advantages to modern practicioners and researcers. This presentation will share data on burial mounds, a historic creamery, as well as some experimental work.
