AERIAL LIDAR SURVEY OF GONAREZOU
The aerial survey of Gorongosa National Park was one of the first projects where the firm’s new ELMAP laser scanner and multi-head camera system were both deployed. Developed at WGS and designed to offer the same across-track footprint as the ELMAP, the multiheaded camera system perfectly compliments the ELMAP and results in higher survey efficiency. Logistics and weather played along well and made way for three perfect days of flying.
The LiDAR data was later used as the input for a machine learning algorithm aimed at counting termite mounds which are all but invisible in the orthophoto but clearly visible in a colourised height model.
