Mapping Hedges & Power Lines

We were out mapping hedges and power lines this week, in fine tuning techniques to visualize strategic secondary indicators for where landmines may (or may not) be.

This was done at Fenswood farm, Long Ashton, Bristol where landmines are not a threat, but in contaminated areas, such features are strategic.

Using an Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) means that equipment is independent of the often deadly, volatile ground, and a lot of really useful, very high resolution survey data can be collected quickly.

Fardoulis Robotics provided UAS equipment, piloting, GIS expertise and operational support again this week, flying the latest University of Bristol landmine sensing payload. This is for the landmine detection project by the University of Bristol, in association with the Find A Better Way landmine charity.

April 4th is the International Day of Mine Awareness and Assistance in Mine Action, and so please display the #TogetherAgainstMines triangle to help remind people of how deadly landmines really are.
