Multi-sensor UAV Project Secures Digital Preservation of Indian Landmark

Terra Drone India has recently successfully completed a multi-sensor, multi-platform scanning project of the internationally recognized landmark Charminar. Built in 1591, the monument, which is often called the ‘Arc de Triomphe of the East’, suffered significant damage in May 2019 when a huge chunk of lime plaster from its south-west minaret broke and fell off. This incident made the digital preservation of Charminar extremely time-sensitive and important for the Indian government. The IT department of Telangana state government invited Terra Drone India to provide innovative technological solutions for the digital preservation of Charminar.  Terra Drone India scanned and surveyed the...
