Chaffee County UAV Demonstration
Wohnrade Civil Engineers, Inc. performed a UAV demonstration on August 12, 2016 for several members of the Chaffee County UAS Advisory Board, County Administration, and the CSU Chaffee County Extension office.
Two UAS platforms were used to collect data during the demonstration, which included a multi-rotor UAV, and a fixed-wing UAV. Data was collected and then processed within a 24-hour period for a small 8.2-acre property, located approximately 4 miles northwest of Poncha Springs, Colorado, on property owned by a local rancher.
The deliverables included: a Digital Surface Model (DSM); a high-resolution orthomosaic image; an elevation model, and a 3D Model.
