Aerial Photos of Historic Sites Using Drones
Donald A. Windsor
Historic sites are often overgrown and difficult to find. Sometimes a few stone structures remain, but other features may be obscured. A birds-eye view is a great way to visualize an entire area.
Drones are currently being used for many applications, but this one may be the first used for exploring a historical site in Chenango County. On April 25, 2016, David G. Francis used his drone to photograph our Chenango Canal Lock 99.
Here he is, standing downstream of the lock, flying the drone photographing him.
