LiDAR scan for Archaeological Purposes
A pair of German archaeologists were responsible for studying archaeological sites in Palau. They had two key locations they were interested in, as they already discovered man-made features there.
2cofly was hired to conduct a LiDAR scan to reveal the bare-earth data of these two sites. We were able to complete both sites within a few days of scanning and deliver the point clouds to them within a week.
As both sites were highly vegetated, studying the sites on foot would have been an extreme journey, hacking their way through the jungle with a machete. LiDAR data was able to penetrate the canopy from above and provide the archaeologist data to study and narrow their search area on foot.
2cofly is a full service drone service provider in Guam and Micronesia. Our company has two primary focus areas: construction and education.
We work primarily with construction and engineering firms and offer:
Orthomosaic Mapping (+ Planimetric Mapping)
Topographic Mapping (via LiDAR & photogrammetry)
General LiDAR Mapping (land feasibility study, power line, etc)
Aerial Magnetometry (underground metal detection)
Part 107 education and drone training
Our drone deliverables, however, benefit a multitude of industries, including insurance, architecture, government, military, archaeology and more. Let's discuss how we can help you!
