There are obvious benefits of working with unmanned technologies, none more so than getting to travel the world deploying the latest technology on new and exciting projects. In March, FAi partnered with Scanlab Projects, London based 3d Scanning aficionados, and travelled India to complete a new approach to property development combining terrestrial and airborne point cloud data. The combination of unmanned and terrestrial laser scanned data allowed us to create topographic data covering very large areas, filled in with extremely high quality data. The results, currently being used by masterplanners, are impressive, and accurate.
As with lots of new technologies comes new methods of working. Such high resolution 3D data is not always easy to work with, but through a close relationship with the local company they are making full use of the data, so much so we are welcomed back to continue the work! India, we look forward to seeing you again soon.
