Low altitude aerial photography methods such as kite and pole photography have long been considered a valuable information gathering tool for archeologists. As well as the advantages of increased levels of detail, coverage and a huge reduction in cost, low-level views offer perspectives which are distinct from ground and aerial views but which take advantages from both.
This investigation aims to look into how these alternative image capturing methods sit within a modern context and how they can be applied to public interpretation as well as scientific analysis. In the following pages find my explorations into how data captured in this way can be processed, using photogrammetry for example, and used to create interpretative content. In the course of my MSc project I hope to understand better how data rich visualisations can portray not just factual information, but the surrounding atmospheres and stories associated with historical sites.
