Overview of Aerial Mapping Technologies
B. Vander Jagt

   Manned aircraft vs. unmanned aircraft systems (UAS)
   UAS platforms: fixed wing and rotorcraft
   UAS photogrammetry

Photogrammetry for Historic Preservation
J. Davis

   UAS based photogrammetry has proven to be a great technique to
      document historic buildings by creating high-resolution models that
      can be used for rehabilitation or basic documentation.
   The ability to cover large areas relatively quickly with a UAS to create
      high-resolution topography models using photogrammetry has revealed
      new insights into some of Ohio’s most famous archaeological sites.
