Digital outcrop models provide a powerful data basis to obtain orientation information on rock masses. Robust and transferrable automatic methods are required to process and analyze these data, as outcrops and hence acquired 3D point clouds are influenced by varying conditions depending e.g., on the site, atmospheric conditions and other factors. A crucial aspect in [...]

Researchers of the GIScience group (Institute of Geography, University of Heidelberg) captured parts of the limestone quarry of HeidelbergCement in Nussloch near Heidelberg in cooperation with the Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) developing company MAVinci.
The aim of analysing the data is to find a cost-effective, time-saving but precise method to survey a quarry, including volume [...]
