Earlier this year at the castle of Medellín, province of Badajoz (Region in the West of Spain close to Portugal), an outstanding project took place with a collection of technologies supplied by three Spanish companies: Aereodron, who supplied the UAVs (drones) and were supported by Recursos Técnicos Madrid, S.L, (RTM) who managed and digitized the 3D images collected by the drone, and TYOSA a surveying company who monitored and managed the workings of the GPS. Miguel Ãngel Hacar, Senior Consultant at RTM reported the details of the case study: âThe photographs taken by Aerodronâs multirrotor UAV, are used to create a 3D model that is managed by several software applications such as CAD, GIS and surveying control. The 3D model is the starting point to re-create a virtual museum. Any information not collected by the drone is added with the use of a ground based LIDAR scanner.â
