Terratest Aero was contacted to produce a 3D model of quarry located in Western Sydney. The results were to be used by the client to measure volumes and track the progress of the quarry via an online portal, allowing them to visualize their quarry from an aerial perspective.
UAV’s can collect photogrammetry data extremely quickly, covering this site in a matter of minutes. The quarry below only measures 18.5ha however multiple sites can be stitched together for larger areas.
Data is sent for processing where it creates the 3D model, point-cloud, 2D aerial, and Digital Elevation Model. (DEM) These can be uploaded to an browser based online portal, making them accessible for companies and individuals that do not have access to modelling software.
