IJmuiden is the location of a stone depot with large quantities of different sized stones that are being used for offshore windmill foundations at the North Sea. The volumes of these stock piles need to me measured regularly in order to determine the quantities being used in different projects. The traditional method of measuring is however very time-, cost inefficient and even dangerous.
Since Skeye already worked for the owner in a different setting so this request also came our way. In a pre-planned flight covering the total area, our Microdrone MD4-1000 Drone collected the large amount of high-resolution data. The accurate digital terrain model that could be produced with this data enabled Skeye to perform the final volume measurements needed and present an official report.
