Small, low-power, low-cost swath bathymetry for client installation in small and autonomous vehicles
The objective of this project is to survey a residential area and detect changes in structures for property taxation purposes. The area surveyed included about 50 houses which were clearly shown on an orthophoto and as a dense point cloud as well.
This allowed quick area examination and measurement of each property on the point cloud, and a more precise measurement right on the images.
With ubiquitous Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV’s) getting adopted into a constantly increasing number of civil and military applications, operation capabilities are getting more sophisticated. Needs now extend further than just operating Beyond the Line Of Sight (BLOS).
It was an opportunity that couldn’t be refused when Emesent’s, Jeremy Sofonia, was invited to participate in the National Geographic series, “Buried Secrets of WWII”.
Called upon for his experience in drone and LiDAR mapping, Hovermap imaged a WWII battlefield in the central highlight lands of Papua New Guinea.
