There are many functions that we can apply to unmanned aircraft. From its recreational use to its application archeology with drones.
In addition, to have the ability to apply the latest Drone technology to the service of Cultural Heritage is an advantage in all aspects.
What benefits does the use of these drones have?
A Drone is an unmanned aerial vehicle that can be remotely controlled by remote control.
As we have commented previously, the application of drone technology is innumerable. It allows us to perform complex and dangerous tasks, in a simpler and safer way for people.
In addition, drones have made our lives more comfortable, getting a new way of working more autonomous and above all, more economical now available to everyone.
Application of drones to archaeological research
In archeology with Drones we use aircraft that have a camera that allows you to photograph large monuments as well as sites in full detail and at maximum resolution.
We also know that the study of the field of deposits has been carried out for years by means of thermography. These are heat image captures that help archaeologists locate monuments or underground buildings.
From a good height, drones are able to cover a large amount of land, much faster and more accurately than in the common way.
We have different drones to adapt our audiovisual services to any scenario.
Inspire 2, (5k and RAW recording with the Zenmuse X5S camera), is the ideal drone for outdoor aerial shots. With it, we will obtain large aerial panoramas with unbeatable accuracy.
MavicPro, on the other hand, is ideal for making aerial recordings in closed places and in areas of difficult access, since its small size makes it really useful and manageable.
We can make mapping routes autonomously, by setting the departure and arrival points for which we want the drone to fly consequently.
Moreover we have the possibility of marking certain points during the journey. So this way the drone can take photographs of all kinds autonomously, in order to increase the quality of our research.
