A video about the first flight of a Drone (for peace and culture) in UR, Iraq.
The first ortho-photomap of the archaeological site of UR was assembled using hundreds of frames taken by a UAV system that flew on the site in the month of March 2014 following a heavy rain that has made visible many underwater structures. The strong moisture is also shown by the presence of green areas, particularly in the areas of water drainage flow. In addition to the archaeological remains that finally can be clearly viewed from above of 150 meters of altitude with a good resolution, the conformations of the hydrographic patterns of the land that will remove, if reactivated according to their natural flow, the stagnation of rainwater producing damage to archaeological structures, is clearly visible.
The average resolution is 20 cm. A resolution of 5 cm is being processed and will be released soon.
