Multitemporal Lidar: A New Workflow for the Detection of Subtle Topographic Features in Dense Forest Areas

ICAC researchers publish a new study in Land, showcasing the potential of multitemporal lidar-derived digital terrain models for the detection of subtle archaeological features under perennial dense forest.  Featured image: Figure 1. Lidar point-cloud.  Lidar-derived digital terrain models (DTMs) have, during the last years, become an essential tool in landscape archaeology (Berganzo-Besga et al. 2021)…

New algorithm for the automated detection and classification of multi-cell phytoliths using AI

A new study published in the Journal of Archaeological Science shows that it is possible to automate the detection and classification of phytoliths with a high-level of accuracy, up to a species level. This method has the potential to allow the development of much larger analytical datasets in a fraction of the time than was…
