LDE Global Support Grant for Naomi Oosterman

Sierra Nevada

The Leiden-Delft-Erasmus Universities (LDE) Global Support program has funded the project “Identification of irregular archaeological features in northern South America forest using Remote Sensing methods”. The project aims to automate the identification of archaeological sites in the northern forests of South America. The project team consists of Frank Takes (PI, Leiden University) and co-applicants Naomi Oosterman (Assistant Professor of Cultural Heritage, ESHCC), Roderik Lindenbergh (TU Delft), Juan Carlos Vargas (Universidad del Magdalena), Sebastian Fajardo Bernal (Leiden University) and Alexander Geurds (Leiden University).

The results of this project will feed into the existing project Mapping the Archaeological Pre-Columbian Heritage in South America (MAPHSA), which focuses on producing the first leading integrated database for pre-Hispanic archaeological heritage of South America.

LDE supports initiatives which aim at co-creation of research or other programmes between faculty members of the LDE-universities and scholars and scientists from 'majority world countries' in Africa, South- and Southeast-Asia and Latin-America. Groups of scholars and scientists can receive a financial contribution of up to €25,000 to co-create research and/or other programmes and/or organise joint LDE-Majority World seminars, workshops, summer schools or other activities.
