Photogrammetric Mapping of Six Proposed Solar Farm Sites Across Upstate New York

GEOD provided photogrammetric surveys for numerous proposed solar farm sites across New York State using drone-based imagery, offering both cost-efficiency and rapid results.

GEOD’s UAV specialists visited each site, laid out and conducted GPS surveys to establish temporary targets, and then deployed drones to capture imagery with 80% forward and side overlap. The imagery was used to produce one orthorectified image for each site along with a digital terrain model to generate 1’ contours as required. Planimetric features were extracted from stereo imagery to complete the final client deliverables.

Using our drone-based approach on these sites, GEOD’s crew was able to mobilize and fly each location within 24 hours and begin data processing immediately thereafter. GEOD’s efficient workflow provided a quick turnaround of client deliverables.

The final deliverables included an XML surface, orthoimages in ECW format, and plan data in a .DWG file.
