SLOPE STABILITY ASSESSMENT IN THE SCOTTISH HIGHLANDS

Cyberhawk was tasked by a major engineering consultant to provide topographic survey data and high-resolution aerial photography of a hillside in the Scottish Highlands. Our client required the data to undertake a slope stability assessment of an area adjacent to a major trunk road.

Cyberhawk’s two-man team of land surveyor and pilot surveyed the site using a multi-rotor UAV.

We carried out the work on site within one day. A Digital Elevation Model (DEM), 3D Pointcloud, orthophoto and aerial spherical images were delivered to our client.

In order to carry out the aerial survey, we worked under traffic management with road traffic being stopped during our four short flights. The site would have been almost impossible to survey safely using ground-based methods.
