Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, changes to courses and exams may be necessary at short notice (e.g. cancellation of on-site teaching and conversion to online exams). Register for courses/exams via u:space, find out about the current status on u:find and on the moodle learning platform. NOTE: Courses where at least one unit is on-site are currently marked "on-site" in u:find.

Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

In the last decade, airborne laser scanning (ALS / LiDAR) has developed into an essential method (not only) of archaeological prospection. Even settlement, environmental and landscape archaeological work can hardly do without the high-resolution digital terrain models from ALS data.
The course teaches the theoretical and practical basics of this method using archaeological examples.

The course is planned as a classroom course. In case the capacity of the room is exceeded by existing registrations, the course will be offered as a mixed course (division of the course into groups, which take part in the course in weekly rotation in attendance or in asynchronous digital form by recording). In case of another lock-down, the course will be switched to purely digital teaching.

Assessment and permitted materials

Personal attendance required; active participation (participation in discussions); Independent accomplishment of an assigned task with written report.

Test on 5th of November: Questions on the theoretical part.
The participants have to solve a task on their own and write a report. Submission by 28 February 2020 at the latest.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

- Test in session on 5th of November (theory): 40%.

In view of the future development of Covid-19, it is possible that the test will be accepted digitally in writing; any changes in examination modalities caused by Covid-19 will be announced separately.

- Independent accomplishment of tasks as home exercises within a given time frame: 20%.
- Interpretative mapping of aerial photographs and preparation of a report within a specified time frame (until 28 February): 40%.

Examination topics

The exercise is divided into a theoretical and a practical part. Theoretical part: Lecture with presentations. Practical part: working with ALS data from visualization to interpretative mappin. Unsing GIS software (ArcGIS or QGIS).
Questions and discussion contributions are welcome.
