Landfill Rautenweg

The objective of the project for the MA48 was a comparison between drones and airborne laser-scanners regarding the efficiency of volume and terrain model computations. In conclusion the drones delivered comparable results with minimal technical, organisational and financial effort (the image measuring accuracy with automated connecting points was 2 cm).
