As said on their official website: A team of SenseFly engineers marks a new milestone in surveying techniques’ history by demonstrating that minidrone mapping technology is capable of producing a 20cm-resolution 3D model of the epic Matterhorn, known as "the most beautiful mountain" worldwide.
The mission to bring Matterhorn into 3D involved the cooperation of several teams, this including the cooperation with Pix4d.
It took multiple eBee drones, 11 flights and over 2200 images. Instrumental in the success of this mission were two features – 3D mission planning based on elevation data and multi-drone operation – recently released in senseFly’s ground control software eMotion 2.
A high-definition 3D point-cloud made of 300 million points covering an area of over 2800 hectares with an average resolution of 20cm.
