The recent availability of light detection and ranging (LiDAR) data has revolutionized
archaeological research in Minnesota and beyond. LiDAR allows us to identify
archaeological resources over large spatial extents and recognize features that are
difficult to perceive on the ground. LiDAR elevation data may also be combined
with geophysical survey methods to better understand feature geometry and
subsurface integrity. This presentation will introduce advanced LiDAR data
processing and visualization methods for archaeological research, as well as discuss
how LiDAR data may be combined with geophysical data to map archaeological
features in three dimensions. These topics will be explored through presentation of a
number of regional case studies.
