Take a look at some of our recent projects as well as the different Aerial UAV Services we provide to the Ohio, West Virginia and Kentucky Tri-State area.
EARTHEN DAM CASE STUDY
Recently we completed a project capturing aerial imagery, gathering elevation data, and creating 3D models for earthen dams across the state. After collecting about a dozen RTK corrected ground points we created a flight acquisition plan that allowed us to capture the imagery we needed in the least amount of flights and time to ensure a good model could be created. We flew two Nadir flights at a single altitude and the flew one oblique flight to capture the front face of the dam. After we collected the data we processed and aligned the imagery with the GCP’s and exported contour and elevation data, a 3D model, a digital terrain model and were able to calculate the fill volume of the dam before it would break the spill way and reach the inendation route. Below is the data we were able to collect.
THE POTENTIAL USES of drone technology in mining & aggregates have been talked about for years now. We are now able to send a drone to perform visual inspections on volumetrics and topography in order to help keep tabs on stockpiles.
