Here’s a great example of a large project where one of the digital/reality capture outputs from drone technology i.e. orthomosaic, has been overlaid with the architects design model.
This combination of digital datasets can be used as follows:
1. an architect can use them in the project design phase to understand and plan the orientation of buildings, road, footpaths, services, etc.
2. for a planning application it gives planners unique insights into the site and its surrounding area. 3. allows developers to get critical aerial evidence to help support their planning case
4. check project progress against plan drawings
An orthomosaics or orthophoto is a single high resolution digital image that is orthorectified so measurements can be taken from it, it can also be tied into the OS or a local grid using ground control points for global accuracy.
