Stephanie and Sam visited Rosalie in Natchez, MS to take drone footage of the grounds as part of their Sidewalk – Access project. Using the drone, they will be able to virtually “revisit” the site with more context of existing conditions and patterns than one could with simply still shots.
We typically use drones on historic projects such as this in the beginning stages of surface mapping. As mentioned before, this allows us to virtually revisit the site as well as reach areas that we otherwise could not (roof, eaves, etc.) take high resolution aerial shots and give a sense of the space for others working on the project that do not visit the site.
