Archaeologists managed to locate the lost village of Goschwitz, near Strzelin, South-West Poland, with use of freely available airborne LiDAR data. The Medieval village dates back to the 13th century and existed only for a couple decades.
An ancient network of roads that stretched over nearly 250 kilometres has been discovered in the Guatemalan jungle thanks to LiDAR scans. The structures date to 600 BC and were created by the first state-like civilisation that developed in Mesoamerica.
Linear features and enclosures were identified on airborne LiDAR data within the Białowieża Forest in north-eastern Poland. Archaeologists examined selected sites of the newly-found feature complex and determined their man-made character.
Archaeologist at Isle of Man apply modern prospection techniques to study mounds that range from the Neolithic to the Bronze Age. These methods include LiDAR measurements, geophysics and DNA analysis.
LiDAR technology helped researchers to uncover evidence of architectural structures hidden under vegetation in the vicinity of Machu Picchu in Peru. Among the newly discovered structures are terraces and platforms and pathways of the Inca Trail stretch.
Vast fields of dome-shaped earthen mounds were found by archaeologists in 1000-year-old sites in Cambodia. The features are organised into gridded patterns. The scientists are puzzled what these structures were used for.
Two knight keeps in the vicinity of Gliwice (Southern Poland), in Pniów and in Stare Tarnowice have been studied by archaeologists from the Museum in Gliwice.
Archaeologists from University of Łódź discovered a previously unknown knight keep thanks to airborne laser scanning. In 2014 one of the archaeologists in the Institute of Archaeology on University of Łódź stumbled upon a land feature near the village Gieczno while browsing through the Digital Elevation Model being a part of Polish Geoportal.
Over a dozen previously uncharted monumental megalithic graves have been discovered in North-western Poland by archaeologists from The University of Szczecin in the region of Western Pomerania.
The Environment Agency has used lasers to scan and map the English landscape from above since 1998. This LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) technology is also publicly available and has proved particularly helpful to archaeologists seeking to map ancient features, such as Roman roads that have been ‘lost’, some for thousands of years.
In an enormous effort an area of over 110 square kilometres has been studied by archaeologists from The National Archaeological Museum in Warsaw with the use of both non-invasive techniques and through excavations.
