Implementation of Unmanned Aerial System-Based (UAS) Digital Photogrammetry for Design, Risk Analysis, and Hazard Mitigation of Rock Slopes

Project No: 114418

Target Completion Date: November 8, 2021 Structures

About the project:

Explore unmanned aerial systems (UAS), using digital photogrammetry and point-cloud data analysis software, as a tool to provide rock slope design and rock slope remediation recommendations of a quality comparable to existing traditional and ground-based methods. This research would complement current research designed to test the use of emerging technologies for collecting geologic and spatial data related to rock slope investigations, remediation and slope hazard inventories. Applications will include rapid collection of data used in Rockfall Hazard Rating Systems for both the preliminary rating and the detailed rating of rock slopes.
