Spend the day in the field doing transects of the wall with the David Morgan cave and the adjoining wall to the east of it. I am now focusing in on a small part of the wall to be able to do a 90 degree transform of the wall and create contours of the topology. I will pick out contours that overlay with thermal imaging areas that are cool and that should pinpoint caves. I also did IR transects to correlate vegetation with those areas that may be questionable to know if there was vegetation or not, however I think that true color will do just as well. I will also attempt hillshading to see how that may help with locating caves.
I am usually pretty pooped after a day in the field followed by the mental drain of learning on the run these software packages. I am pretty sure it shows in my writing of the blog.
