Heritage & Archaeology
Would a pictorial survey from the air pre, during and post dig be useful?
Could it help you find and record archaeology and record local historical buildings?
Phantom Films provides an aerial photography service for heritage and archaeological groups. Using UAV (drone) flight technology and High Definition cameras we can photograph trenches, identify crop marks and video the footprints of whole sites.
An aerial photograph or short video of a historical building is a great way to create a permanent record of it for the archives. A series of aerial photographs or a video can give a much more accurate record of a site. Images can be used for display purposes, reference texts and for image depository.
When carrying out an archaeological dig, a drone can be used to take images before, during and after any work is carried out on a site. These images can form part of the accurate record keeping that is required, or a video can be used to give a full overview of a specific site.
Here is a selection of heritage aerial photography we have taken:
