Holiday resort Karpaz

No georeferenced maps or terrain models existed for the 100 ha stretch of land in Northern Cyprus. Due to the size of the land, an aerial survey was the fastest and cheapest option for 3D surveying. The orthophotos obtained from this survey were used in a wide range of applications: for project visualisation, as a basis for a detailed terrain model and for the recording of local vegetation in the nature reserve.
