Photography from a kite is ideally suited to recording archaeological sites from above. Vertical or oblique images can be used for site recording and monitoring. It can produce unique viewpoints for publication or promotional images. Using digital cameras allows the collection of many images per session. These can be stitched into larger images and if required, rectified. This makes it a suitable method to rapidly map archaeological sites. Pole aerial photography is ideally suited to recording smaller areas of detail.
