„Aerial Survey of obstacle limitations of Airport Allstedt“ for Jens Sattler, Freelance Airport Engineer and Consultant, Berlin


Short description

The client required a comprehensive survey of the airport and surrounding areas, necessary for an airport reconstruction and upgrade to a leading freight airport in Middle Germany. It was proposed to conduct an aerial survey with accuracies of better than 0,2 m in plane and height. A digital topographic database, containing ground control points, orthophoto and vectorized map information, was produced. Using special developed digital technologies the obstacle limitations were identified and highlighted in the topographic base data. Later this base material was used for modelation and assessment of different planning versions for technical, economical, environmental and financial aspects.
