UAS Survey of Rapa Nui

Capturing 164 Sq Kms of the World’s Most Remote Inhabited Island
Unmanned aerial systems (UASs) can be easily transported and this beneficial feature is ideal for photogrammetric surveys of remote spaces. Rapa Nui (Easter Island), the most isolated inhabited place on the planet, took UAS photogrammetry to the limit because of cloud cover, windy weather conditions and the vast size of the island. The resulting orthoimagery and digital surface models will support archaeological documentation and research. The archaeological features will be archived in a single, detailed database. The authors discuss this exciting and challenging adventure. The existence of Rapa Nui was first recorded in European annals by Jacob Roggeveen. The Dutch... (read more)

New Book: ‘GNSS Survey & Engineering’

Geomares Education introduces a new book, called ‘GNSS Survey & Engineering’, written by Huibert-Jan Lekkerkerk. 'GNSS Survey & Engineering' is aimed at providing the everyday professional GPS user with enough background information for the understanding and correct operation of satellite navigation equipment in general and particularly GPS. The new book is based on the lectures the author has written for the Skilltrade course in hydrographic surveying as well as a series of articles on satellite navigation systems. Today, GPS is almost synonymous with simple navigation and positioning in nearly all sectors. There are many brands and models to choose from... (read more)

Ordnance Survey Announces GPS Devices

Ordnance Survey (OS) has announced the launch of four new off-road OS GPS navigation devices for walking, hiking and off-road cycling. The innovative GPS units are a first for OS, and have been designed for ease-of-use straight out of the box. They boast the trusted accuracy that you would expect from OS, combined with advanced performance features. Covering the areas you choose, each device comes with up to 12 tiles of OS’s leisure mapping, giving access to up to 8,000 km2 of continually updated maps in either 1:50,000 or 1:25,000 scale. Durable and water resistant, the devices come with features... (read more)

Maptek Laser Scanners Boost Underground Survey

Underground mine operators can improve site safety and survey productivity with recent releases from Maptek. The updated I-Site 8200 laser scanners feature new tools and compatibility with Maptek Sentry surface tracking and Drive continuous survey systems. The I-Site 8200SR is a fast and accurate solution for cavity surveys. A carbon fibre boom extends up to 10 metres into a tunnel or over a void. The 500-metre range scanner can also be used for surface applications such as stockpile, shed and silo scanning. The I-Site 8200ER has a longer range at 750 metres and provides the best outcomes for mapping underground... (read more)

3D Laser Scanning for Topo Survey

A recent project carried out by J Breheny Contractors on behalf of Cambridge University showcases the economics of using a high definition 3D laser scanner for topo surveying. The rate at which geospatial technology is changing is increasing, and with it, our ability to collect more data more rapidly. 20 years ago it would have taken several seconds and possibly minutes to get a single point using GPS; today we can collect one million points per second using a 3D laser scanner. The methodologies and workflows of data collection by total station, GNSS, video, images, laser scanning, terrestrial and mobile... (read more)
