The programme is endorsed by CIfA, the IHBC and FAME, and has been developed in conjunction with leading heritage practices. Courses are linked to the National Occupational Standards for Archaeology, and for Town Planning, Conservation and Building Control, and are widely accepted for continuous professional development. Details of National Occupational Standards links can be found on the course web pages.

Short details of the programme:

Archaeological survey using airborne lidar is a technique that has been added to the toolbox of the archaeological surveyor, and when used in the appropriate circumstances it can reveal archaeological remains in exceptional detail. This course informs historic environment professionals of the potential and practical use of lidar data and lidar-derived imagery for research and heritage management.

The course is designed for a professional audience, particularly those who are currently involved in research, fieldwork and the planning process and who are aware of lidar, but have little or no practical experience with its use.

Course Director: Simon Crutchley, Remote Sensing Development Mgr, Historic Places Investigation South and West, Historic England

Tutor: Peter Crow, Project Manager, Historic Environment, Forest Research
