Digital models of the Republic’s heritage sites and city areas created using aerial images by drones could be here to stay, if trials conducted by the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) are successful.
The URA said the technique is called photogrammetry, which is the science of making measurements from photographs. It had already partnered with local drone set-up Avetics to create a 3D digital model of the NUS Baba House at Neil Road, the agency said in a press release on Thursday (May 21).
Greetings all. About a year ago, we introduced you to the Lynx.http://diydrones.com/profiles/blogs/introducing-the-lynx. Lynx was our first system developed as an affordable, fixed-wing UAV for mapping. The Lynx design was inspired by military UAS, and we sought to make our own system that was equally durable and practical for field use.
Fast forward a year, and we are proud to announce the Lynx M. Our new design is approximately 20% lighter and 20% smaller than the original but with doubled endurance (3 hours with payload!), sideways camera placement (top facing forward), and more camera options. Read the full article…
There are many ways Trekkies express their love for all things “Star Trek.” They build replicas of Captain Kirk’s chair. They tell you how to make pretty impressiveSpock ears at home. They even design entire apartments to look like the inside of a Starfleet ship.
But when you’re a Trekkie and the CEO of a multimillion dollar software company, you can take things to the next level. According to Mashable, that’s exactly what Liu Dejian did by designing the headquarters of the company he runs — NetDragon Websoft — to look just like the USS Enterprise.
The weather isn’t great and the pubs close too early and the food is often better in other cities and yet London is still one of the capitals of the world and is packed with so much history. Photographer Vincent LaForet took these amazing aerial shots of London and seeing the city overhead like this reminds you why that is.
The buildings may be old and the streets may be confusing when you’re down low but boy, it looks great from above.
