New Publication @ Heritageathena
A new publication was released earlier today by the Heritage MDPI journal. The joint publication of A. Agapiou and D. Skarlatos is entitled as “Geomatic Sensors for Heritage Documentation: A Meta-Analysis of the Scientific Literature”.
Abstract: This review paper aims to provide a meta-analysis of the scientific literature for heritage documentation and monitoring using geo-information sensors. The study initially introduces the main types of geomatic sensors that are nowadays widely used for heritage studies. Although the list provided here is not exhaustive, but only indicative, it provides a general overview of the different sensors used for different observation scales. Then the study focuses on the existing literature based on published documents. Targeted queries were implemented to Scopus database to extract the relevant information. Then filtering was applied to the results to limit the analysis on the specific thematic sub-domains that are applied for heritage documentation and monitoring. These domains include among other close-range and underwater photogrammetry, Terrestrial Laser Scanner, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles platforms, and satellite observations. In total more than 12,000 documents were further elaborated. The overall findings are summarized and presented here providing further insights into current status of the domain.
