Our research makes the headlines in national press!

Last Monday 19th July, La Vanguardia, one of the most read national newspapers in Catalonia and Spain, published an article on remote sensing and artificial intelligence featuring the research of our group. The article focuses on how drone and satellite imagery is radically transforming the detection of sites and other features of archaeological interest, such as scattered surface remains.  For example, it highlights how lidar helped us and our Galician (Miguel Carrero Pazos) and Portuguese (João…
