After leaving myself two hours additional time to get to Birmingham, to account for Birmingham rush hour traffic I found myself abandoning the car in a carpark further away than planned and putting my recent running training to good use, arriving just in time to upload and present my research in the photogrammetry session at the UK National Earth Observation Conference.
I presented the results from the baseline survey I carried out earlier this year. The focus of the talk was on the 3D models and DTMs produced for sites in Iceland, and how they were constrained and process to maximise resolution so that cut and fill models may be created using future repeat surveys. There was interesting to see similar processing methods being used for monitoring blanket bogs, using lidar generated point clouds.
I also learned more about remote sensing and what data is available, unfortunately, the resolution of the satellite data is not sufficient for my buried Ice project, I will be keeping an eye on the data for large-scale changes in surface topography over my PhD using Sentinel data.
If you saw the presentation I welcome any feedback or questions, also if you were not present or wanted to review the presentation at your own pace, the slides are available in the download section of this website.
