Description

This project is about creating two 3D models of a Statesboro city intersection in Statesboro community and compare the accuracies of both to that of a survey’s total station. Models will be produced via laser scanning and by an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) taking aerial pictures (close-range photogrammetry). Both models are including radial and long-range distances for comparison purposes. The 3D model created from the laser scanner is expected to be very accurate while the accuracy of the 3D model created through photogrammetric procedure is relatively unknown. If the photogrammetric model is not accurate enough, steps will be taken in an attempt to improve the accuracy as much as possible. After these two virtual models capturing existing conditions in the field will be completed, they will be sent to the city of Statesboro engineers to assist in redesigning this busy intersection in the near future.
