    image allowed for a more efficient way of organizing “sustainable tourism”, in order to prevent any relevant losses within a historical site; the writer refers to this imaging as the “bald-earth” model, where certain parts are removed to reveal a desired object, building, structure, etc (p. 6). Ultimately, “archaeologists have recognized the potential of gaining a “bird’s-eye” view of the landscape in order to better identify sites and remains” (Comer, et al, 2013, p. 12). Comer (et al, 2013) suggests that being able to see from a top-down perspective is very advantageous to archeologists, in preserving our historical areas. For example, satellite imagery is an option someone can refer to when analysing a large area too great for aerial photography, like the Great Wall of China. The writer suggests that Satellite Imagery is an invaluable asset not only to the discovery of new archeological details, but also in their preservation (p. 15). The importance of satellite imagery for archeologists may also help engineers in their practice, as restoration projects can use the images taken by archeologists to see where the project needs the most work. It can also reveal areas of land which should not be developed on, in order to preserve previously un-noticed archeological findings. Changes in Meteorology Before Satellite imagery, predicting weather patterns was much more difficult, hurricanes were harder to prepare for and many lives were without a doubt lost as a result.

    Apex Sketch takes a sketch export out of your assessing.net database and creates a GIS building shapefile map layer.

    The problems of aerial photography can be solved by using LiDAR, a technology using laser scanners mounted onto aircraft. LiDAR works by generating a point cloud from the measurements provided by the laser which are plotted by a GPS to create accurate coordinates of each measurement. The point cloud is then used to create a detailed map of the ground surface by separating the canopy data which is made from trees and other objects above the ground from the bare earth data (Eeckhaut et al., 2007).…

Louis Daguerre, who is credited with inventing photography, used a large polished sheet of copper that was sensitized by iodine vapor. Then he exposed it in a large box camera. Once the exposure was made, Daguerre developed the image in mercury fumes…
