Project Insight

An operational aqueduct located in a remote location in the glens of Perthshire required remedial works to improve performance. The client required a measured survey of the 5Km corridor which the aqueduct ran through.

Client: UTEC Survey / SSE

Location: Perthshire

Deliverable: DTM and DSM, Geo-referenced Colourised and Non-Colourised Data Set

Duration: 3 Days

CASE STUDY

AQUEDUCT DRONE LiDAR SURVEY

Challenges

  • Remote Location

  • Large Survey Area

  • Challenging Environment

  • Inclement Weather

  • Complexity of Terrain

Solution

Using our bespoke aerial LiDAR platform we were able to survey the entire route in one day with full ground control in place for QA/QC, resulting in a high resolution point cloud with +/-50mm accuracy. Good communication and daily toolbox talks between all parties allowed for a smooth operation.
