“Having put some time into researching available technologies to efficiently capture such a large site I ultimately decided on orthophotography collected using RPAS...

Apart from the obvious deliverable of the high-resolution, rectified aerial imagery, we also had a requirement for a Digital Surface Model (DSM) to enable stockpile volume calculations. The relative accuracy we achieved for the project as a whole was way above my expectations and now we have started to use the data I am only now realising the technologies  full potential as a survey tool.  In my opinion, for certain applications orthophotography is now superior to LiDAR
