Arch Aerial is now working in Belize!
Our crew arrived mid-May, collaborating with researchers from the Programme for Belize Archaeological Project imaging ancient Mayan ruins and running geological survey until the middle of July. Our team consisting of Ryan Baker, Rebecca Rapp, and Brandon Lee will be working at over 8 archaeological sites associated with 5 university research institutions.
Wondering how durable the Atlas-1 really is? Our prototypes have been handling some of the most adverse climates, braving the Belizean rainforest and erratic wet weather that comes along with it. Whether the site is 10 minutes away, or a 7 km round trip hike over jungle escarpments, our team has performed beautifully producing high quality images that are having meaningful effects on research occurring this field season.
Over the next few weeks, we’ll be giving you a closer look at each of the sites. We’ll fill you in on the research goals looking to be answered, and the ways that Arch Aerial has helped to build a better understanding of the ancient activity even in the few short weeks we’ve been in action. Stay tuned.
