Presented by Jon Carroll
Social Scientists use unmanned aerial vehicles (drones) for all kinds of research, from archaeological mapping to the evaluation of farming patterns, mosquito breeding locations and urban planning. Professor Jon Carroll (Oakland University) will discuss his own archaeological research and ways that others in the social sciences have incorporated these tools and their high- resolution imaging abilities into their work.
The event is free, but you need to RSVP.
