During one week of fieldwork at the famous site of Troy in Turkey in the context of the Archaeology of Archaeology at Troy Project, an extensive 2D, 3D and thermal mapping of the site were carried out. The main purpose was to create an accurate model of parts of the site for the above mentioned project, as well as to experiment with drone thermography.
In a 2-hour flight the whole site was captured resulting in a model at ca. 6 cm accuracy. Although drone photogrammetry has potentially a much higher accuracy, this was not the goal of this recording session. The topographical model of the site (below) is used for presentation, navigation and communication purposes.
