Rautenweg landfill

The objective of the project for the MA48 was a comparison of efficiency in volume and terrain model computations between drones and aeroplanes equipped with laser scanners. This comparison showed that the drones delivered comparable results with minimal technical, organisational and financial effort (the image measuring accuracy with automated connecting points was 2 cm).
