Setting a New Standard in UAV Precision Mapping

Interview with Maximilian Boosfeld, CEO, Wingtra
Switzerland-based start-up Wingtra has developed a vertical-take-off-and-landing (VTOL) unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV or ‘drone’) that rises straight up, tilts and flies off like an aeroplane. The WingtraOne is a broad-coverage drone that is used particularly in the surveying, construction and precision agriculture industries and which can capture images in photogrammetric resolution. Offering high-precision mapping in combination with the VTOL and post-processed kinematic (PPK) capabilities, the manufacturer believes it has a strong advantage over the other aerial surveying solutions currently on the market. 'GIM International' decided to talk to Maximilian Boosfeld, co-founder and CEO of Wingtra, to see where the Swiss... (read more)

Airborne Lidar Bathymetry

Mapping Shallow Rivers Under Low-flow Conditions
Although operational for more than twenty years, Airborne Lidar Bathymetry (ALB) has rarely been used in riverine areas. The US Bureau of Reclamation adopted it to study how flow change in the Yakima Rivera affected fish habitat. The authors show that ALB offers accuracy and precision at least as good, if not better than that achieved in typical survey by boat with sonar and GPS. The United States Bureau of Reclamation needed to create an accurate hydraulic model of the Yakima River in Washington State to study how changes in river flow would effect downstream fish habitat. For many years... (read more)
