To take bathymetric measurements in areas with shallow water is very challenging for methods such as SONAR or bathymetric LiDAR. In our study “Assessing the Potential of a Low-Cost 3-D Sensor in Shallow-Water Bathymetry”, we examine the performance of a low-cost 3D camera when capturing bathymetry in waters up to 0.4 m depth.
The tested measurement [...]

In agriculture, information about the spatial distribution of crop height is valuable for applications such as biomass and yield estimation, or increasing field work efficiency in terms of fertilizing, applying pesticides, irrigation, etc. Established methods for capturing crop height often comprise restrictions in terms of cost and time efficiency, flexibility, and temporal and spatial resolution [...]

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 [...]
