Marco BLOCK-BERLITZ / Reinhard JUNG / Marco PACCIARELLI (University of Applied Sciences Dresden, Germany / Österreichische Akademie der Wissenschaften, Austria / University degli Studi di Napoli Federico II, Italy) Abstract: This video showcases the use of UAVs for recording the prehistoric (Bronze Age) site at Punta di Zambrone, Italy ( A coastal site with some striking topography, Punta di Zambrona provides a challenge for ultra-light aerial vehicles, due to strong thermal winds. Another problem was the positioning of georeferencing markers with sufficient visual exposure in the rugged terrain. Nevertheless, the robust UAV technology proved its worth and produced some spectacular video footage from which we were able to reconstruct detailed and stunning 3D models of the site and its surroundings.
