CASE
3D MODELLING
UNESCO
Client: Telemark Fylkeskommune
What: CASE STUDY //
3D modelling of a cultural
heritage site
Where: Vemork, Telemark
THE MISSION
In 2015, several buildings and
sites in Rjukan and Notodden
were declared part of
UNESCO’s World Heritage.
Orbiton was contacted by the
Telemark County Council,
who wanted to make use of
drone technology to create a
3D model of Vemork power
plant at Rjukan.
Vemork power station consists of both the former
power station and the modern, active power
station. Therefore, the biggest challenge for drone
flights – in addition to the difficult terrain – was the
presence of a network of high voltage transmission
lines. After a thorough risk analysis Orbiton
performed 16 flights at Vemork, with some
challenging flights due to turbulence along the
steep mountainside. About 500 photos were taken
from the air of the power station and penstocks,
according to a specific acquisition protocol that
would ensure proper production of the 3D model.
DATA COLLECTION
A 2D DATA SET
TURNED INTO 3D
“Structure from Motion” (SfM) is an imaging
technique that consists of producing threedimensional structures from two-dimensional
image sequences. This was the procedure
Orbiton used for data capture at Vemork.
Several pre-programmed flights were prepared
and the mission was solved with both fully
automated as well as manual flights.
GPS data from the drone was recorded into the
image files, meaning that x, y and z coordinates
were inserted into each picture to know the
exact position it was taken from. This GPS
information was then used as the basis for the
production of the 3D model.

1.For this job, Orbiton used a custom camera with 24 Mpix resolution
and 19 mm optics. The images were captured with an overlap of 85%
by 65%. The unmanned system was programmed to fly at a speed of 7
m/s at 70 and 100 meters altitude. To ensure a high degree of detail in
the data sets, flights were flown at a 90° angle to one another. The data
showed a high level of detail from pixel center to pixel center, in this
case resulting in a GSD (Ground Sample Distance) of well below 2 cm.
2. To produce a 3D model, the pixel-based data – photographs – were
first converted to a “point cloud”, which is a data set consisting of
millions of individual points. These individual points are then connected by small triangles so that all points are woven together in a so-called
“wire frame”. The triangles are used to generate a solid surface between
the points. Finally, the RGB data from the actual photographs were used
to color the surfaces between the points.

Drone Transponders Market Size, Share, Growth & Trend to 2016 to 2022 Radiant Insights, Inc The simplest way to protect against mid-air collisions is to require the use of ADS-B transponders on all aircraft. Transponders can turn an uncooperative environment into a cooperative environment. Transponders provide location and positioning information about smart commercial drones. These drones have a computer inside, they are easy to fly, remotely maneuverable, have a camera, and contain sensor logic. Smart drones are evolving computer driven collision avoidance technology making the flying more reliable. Remote operation occurs in the context of a workflow and sensors. Cameras are improving dramatically to permit management of video and picture taking that is realistic and detailed. Drone actuators, drone transponders, are needed to support drone package delivery. This is a huge new market that speeds economic development, makes it easier for the middle class to both work, and purchase lifestyle items and food efficiently. Drones based on aerial robotic platform technology can be used to make deliveries to each person’s home, landing on the back doorstep, leaving packages in a locked box. The drone package delivery technology has reached a level of maturity that bodes well for market development. Drone systems are mature enough to be at the forefront of aerospace manufacturing.
