Aerial Photographs of Plantation area

Aerial photographs overlooking QEP plantation areas. Aerial photographs and recordings provide useful information on surveyed areas.

All images were obtained from the Kapiti Aeromodellers Club site and did not encroach on public plantation areas.

Map

The map layer was created from multiple images stitched together to create a 2D map layer. Maps such as these are tremendously useful when evaluating a topographic area, as they provide a current-state satellite view of the site. Image collection can be repeated from the exact same positions over a period of months or years to create a time-lapse record of changes and growth.

The annotated green box indicates the area in which aerial images were collected from.

Elevation

Through the collection of images taken, a mesh can be generated to visually represent the change in elevation of the park. This makes it easier to evaluate and plan land areas.

Plant Health

When all the photographic data is analysed by the system, a map layer indicating Plant Health is created using algorithms such as NDVI (Normalized Difference Vegetation Index). This enables users to assess plant health and crop variability.

3D Scan

Go ahead click and navigate through this. Explore the 3D Scan, wander through the plantation area via your fingertips in either first-person or 3rd-person view.

Note: Due to some of the constraints of the area in which the aerial imagery was permitted on this day, the 3D model is quite limited. It would usually be scanned with a full orbit of the area providing greater detail.

Views within the 3D Model

The ability to visualise land areas and buildings in a 3D model allows one a greater understanding of depth and size that can be explored virtually.

At Kapiti3D we also have the ability to turn digital 3D Models and 3D Scans into physical models that you can hold in your hand thanks to the groundbreaking power of 3D Printing.
