NATIONAL ORTHOMOSAIC PROJECT
To capture imagery and provide hi-res orthomosaics of the majority of Scotland's national forestry estate between 2020 - 2024.
In early March 2020, we captured the first 958 of many thousands of hectares in an ambitious effort to generate hi-res (5cm/pixel) orthomosaics of the majority of Scotland's national forestry estate over the next four years.
After researching the initial designated coupes and plotting flight patterns, our pilot identified three weather windows that were conducive for flying, travelling into Scotland for a total of nine days' field work. He flew an average 106Ha per day, capturing a total of 9,362 images, each of which were edited to provide our software with optimum clarity and detail before being stitched together into five separate orthomosaics. The largest orthomosaic covered an area of 392Ha (969 acres) and took three days' work in the field to capture.
All orthomosaics were delivered digitally to our customer within eight business days of the final flight, each with an accompanying quality report. The project imagery and reports were delivered to our customer in their desired format.
As this project continues, there will be many exciting prospects and developments to follow! To stay updated, follow us across our various social media platforms - links below.
