Eye-bot Aerial Solutions Creates Highly Accurate 3D Vertical Monopole Models

ContextCapture Safely Collects More Data Faster to Build Precise Reality Meshes
In 2017, Eye-bot Aerial Solutions, a drone service company, completed a 3D reality model of cell tower antennas in Springdale, Pennsylvania. The project team at Eye-bot initiated the Springdale Monopole project to improve model fidelity, positional accuracy, and photo-realism by comprehensively modelling vertical monopole structures that feature transparent, complex cross-bracing. In the long term, Eye-bot strives to use the enhanced models to help create standardized 3D modelling workflows. The organization specializes in using unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) photogrammetry to generate 3D models of cell towers. Based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Eye-bot has worked within several industries, including industrial manufacturing, oil and... (read more)

New Zealand Trials AirMap for Drone Traffic Management System

AirMap has joined forces with Airways New Zealand to deploy an unmanned traffic management system that enables safe and compliant drone flights for a three-month trial in the Canterbury and Queenstown regions of New Zealand. Drone flights in New Zealand are growing exponentially. Over the past three years, weekly recorded drone flights in the country's controlled airspace have increased 20-fold. As drones take off in increasing numbers, unmanned traffic management (UTM) technology will allow them to integrate safely with New Zealand's national airspace system. The Airways-AirMap trial brings digital authorization capabilities first deployed in the U.S. for the LAANC program to New Zealand. Using AirMap's free iOS and Android apps, drone operators...

Stuttgart Showcases Data Capture Technologies - INTERGEO 2015

Data is essential for any GIS. Fortunately today there is a vast array of rapid data capture technologies. GIS Professional’s sister publication Geomatics World reports from the world’s biggest exhibition of geospatial technologies. Early autumn means a trip to Germany for the Intergeo event. This year it fell in Stuttgart (2016 is Hamburg then Berlin for 2017). As RICS’s James Kavanagh observes, “The event is always a hothouse of new ideas, geo-technology and a great indicator of how. . . global geomatics is evolving.” The three-day show attracted a record 549 exhibitors occupying some 15,000 square metres and some 16,500...
