AIRD’ECO-Drone carried out micro-topography to find artefacts that might be linked to an archaeological presence of pirates from the 17th and 18th centuries on land. This was done around a bay called Ambodifotatra on the island of Sainte Marie in the north-east of Madagascar.

Using the Mapper LiDAR, they were able to map the bay and generate digital terrain models of the hills, in order to find traces of habitat or walls.
