Routescene UAV LiDAR technology helps create map of radiation levels at Chernobyl

Posted on February 12, 2020 in

Researchers from University of Bristol and National Centre for Nuclear Research (NCNR) conducted out a project to create a map of radiation levels in areas close to Chernobyl nuclear power plant. As part of this project they used a Routescene LidarPod UAV LiDAR system and LidarViewer Pro software.

Over a period of 10 days the team flew a variety of drones to map and measure levels of radiation. This allowed their team to be based a safe distance away. They covered an area of approximately 6 square miles. The sites included the village of Buriakiva and the surrounding Red Forest. The Routescene UAV LiDAR system was used to create 3D digital terrain models for smaller areas of interest.
