The National Trust has turned to aerial laser mapping to create accurate 3D models of the Dudmaston Hall estate in Shropshire, England. Working with Bluesky, the Trust plans to improve access to the historically and culturally important estate. Measurements captured using aircraft mounted lasers have been used to create the 3D visualisations of the 17th century country mansion estate and woodland areas. The Bluesky laser data is now being used to underpin and inform other survey activities, and allow for improved access to the estate through the design and creation of additional walking and cycling routes. “We are always looking to improve the visitor experience at our properties through new attractions and better access to existing facilities,” commented Sue Briggs, Outdoors Project Manager for the National Trust at Dudmaston. Bluesky undertook the LiDAR survey in November 2016 in accordance with tight project deadlines and uncertain weather conditions.
