Remote visualisation of coastal defences and highway infrastucture
As part of the multi-disciple survey project on the Devon coastline, the autoMAP mobile mapping system was used to acquire mobile mapping data along :
- Dawlish Warren beach at low tide – for coastal defence condition assessment and general beach management; and
- Dawlish Warren road towards Star Cross – for highway infrastructure mapping
The output from the autoMAP system will provide a high quality fully geo-referenced environment within the Orbit Explorer interface, enabling a ‘Google Street View’ type visualisation and, given the geo-referencing, measurement tool.
Having this ability to bring the outside in unlocks the potential for efficient site viewing, verification, validation, measurement and design, without the need to visit the site.
