Klöcher basalt quarry

A fully automated survey of the landfills was conducted in the basalt quarry of the company Asamer. The objective was the precise quantity surveying of the dumped basalt with the least possible effort. After determining the control points for georeferencing of the images, we recorded the landfill in just 7 minutes with an octocopter. The photogrammetry software eventually generated a high-resolution terrain model from the photos. (Accuracy >1 centimetre)
