Drone mapping of abandoned quarry workings

with No Comments

On Titterstone Clee Hill, just outside of Ludlow in Shropshire, there are some old, long abandoned quarry workings, ripe for an example of drone mapping.

Using a Mavic pro drone, and Maps Made Easy, a pre-planned UAV flight was designed and flown. In all, 80 photos were taken and stitched together.

The resulting images, once submitted to Maps Made Easy, were then used to generate a small 3D model of the area.

The resulting images that were stitched together, are displayed here, superimposed on google maps satellite view. (You may have to zoom out a couple of times)

After running through the service, the following visualisation of the area was produced:

These images and models can be used in a variety of industries, such as construction, farming, architecture and archaeology.

If you have an application that may benefit from similar imaging, please don’t hesitate to get in touch, and we will be pleased to discuss how we can help with your needs.
