EUROSENSE awarded with large LiDAR and orthophoto-project in Flanders
As an update of the digital terrain model (DTM) of Flanders created more than 7 years ago, the FGIA tendered a LiDAR-project on the entire Flemish and Brussels Capital Region, divided into 7 parcels. The project consists in a LiDAR-data acquisition during the leafless season with a point density of min. 16 points per m² (8 points per m² with at least 50% sidelap) and a simultaneous image acquisition with a GSD of at least 10cm. The LiDAR-data needs to be processed into an accurate DSM and, after filtering, into a DTM providing detailed information on the (micro)relief in Flanders. The acquired imagery needs to be processed into a detailed orthophoto with a GSD of 10cm.
Each supplier could submit an offer for maximum 4 parcels and EUROSENSE has been awarded with the 4 parcels for which it offered. In total, the awarded parcels comprise 10.458 km² or ca. 60% of the entire project area (Flanders and Brussels Capital Region, including buffers). The flights need to be executed over three winter seasons of which the first season already starts on the 15th of January 2013.
EUROSENSE broadening their tree inventory services
At the end of 2012, EUROSENSE was awarded with three additional tree inventory projects in Belgium. This means that in the coming year EUROSENSE will assess the health status of ca. 40.000 trees using a combination of terrain work and remote sensing.
An overview of the recently awarded projects:
- East-Flanders and West-Flanders: inventory of trees along national roads. This includes the positioning of trees (by Mobile Mapping), dimension measurements, Visual Tree Assessment analysis (VTA), creation of a GIS database and maps.
- The Brussels Institute for environment (BIM/IBGE): a complete inventory of all parks is to be set up, including the positioning of trees, dimension measurements, VTA analysis and a GIS database. Additional information for dangerous trees is gathered by resistography, tomography and traction tests. The overall aim is to determine a tree policy by creating a management plan for each park with clearly defined measures for every tree.
