3D photogrammetry in recording buildings
On the 15th of January the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority will be holding a free training event in Bainbridge on the use of 3D photogrammetry in recording buildings. This will give an introduction to 3D photogrammetry and its use in recording built heritage. There will be an opportunity to undertake a photogrammetry survey of a building, subject to the weather conditions being suitable. It will also provide guidance on planning a survey, as well as an overview of the built heritage of dairying. The event will also highlight how you can participate further in undertaking 3D photogrammetry surveys for the Dairy Days project.

Surveying on High Brae
A team of IAG colleagues completed a survey of a cairn field on High Brae (on the eastern slopes of Ingleborough).

Some 22 cairns were identified and recorded, the vast majority with some sandstone showing amongst the limestone. Further investigation will be needed to decide whether these are simply clearance cairns, or have some greater importance. More photos here.
