Archaeolandscapes conference Conflict Landscapes Ypres (15-17 May Ypres, Belgium)

The study of the archaeology of the First and Second World Wars has rapidly expanded over the last decade, not the least because of the approaching centennial of the First World War in 2014-18. These conflict landscapes and their surviving archaeological remains are mainly studied from two different approaches: either using contemporary historical aerial photographs or with modern day prospection techniques (oblique aerial photographs, Lidar, geophysical prospection techniques, etc…).

Announcement: UAVs for Environmental Monitoring – Short Course

7-11 July 2014, Cranfield University, UK

This five day course will cover the principles of UAV flight control (theory, practice and practical demo), image processing (data capture and analysis) and environmental applications (using data from different case studies). The course will strengthen current knowledge of UAVs for environmental science whilst also addressing wider relevant key elements on environmental sampling/monitoring protocols, data capture, analysis and interpretation.

Overall, this course consolidates the application of UAV technology by introducing environmental professionals and researchers to state-of-the art technology for environmental monitoring- a key skill gap identified by the Environment Sector.  More information available on the website:

EuroSDR questionnaire on Oblique Airborne Photogrammetry

The EuroSDR ( has an ongoing activity on oblique aerial camera systems, a rediscovered technology in the photogrammetric and mapping field. Oblique aerial systems are rapidly maturing and expanding the market with many R&D open issues. For these reasons a questionnaire has been prepared to (i) highlight the potential of oblique camera systems for mapping and modelling purposes and (ii) collect technical details and information on hardware and software. All hard- and software producers, users and agencies working with oblique airborne images are invited to participate in this questionnaire. The questionnaire will only take 5 min of your time and your cooperation would be really appreciated.
