Using Drones To Map Idaho's Past

For four years, a group from Northwest Nazarene University has been using drones to map out burn areas to aid firefighters and research the behavior and environmental impact of wildfires.

This summer, the group led by NNU professor Dale Hamilton will use drones to create ariel photo-mosiacs of the Boise Basin and Boise National Forest to help archeolgists research the 150-year-old mining history of Idaho. Dr. Hamilton joins us with one of his students to talk about using drones to learn more about our state.
