RH Coast-3

Using Drones at a height of 60m -120m to take 360 aerial panoramas for a variety of exciting emerging commercial uses.

First emerging commercial use covered is countryside and coastal stewardship

These linked 360 aerial landscape panoramas allow the user to moves through an area covering up to 2.5 kilometers. These include areas that are difficult or impossible to get to on foot.

This gives the user the ability to use these and habitat and environmental surveys to plan and cost landscape changes, develop clearance strategies and do annual comparisons of the changing landscape.

Trials were completed in the UK in 2018/19 for the National Trust the 2nd largest landowner in the UK, with over 250,000 hectares.

Examples of other new emerging commercial uses for aerial 360 panoramas featured are:

  • Using 360 aerial panoramas within Computer Generated Imagery CGI
  • Defining Site Boundaries
  • Construction Site Progress
  • Viewing Secure Sites

Date and time for this talk at IVRPA Belfast 2019 is TBD.
