Initial Flights with Airborne Hydrography AB Chiroptera II system
Earlier this year the Nova Scotia Community College (NSCC) announced that the Government would invest over seven hundred thousand dollars through the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) that would help researchers at the Applied Geomatics Research Group (AGRG) unlock some of Nova Scotia’s coastline mysteries known as the “white ribbon gap” from the challenges involved with mapping shallow water coastal areas. Last month, Leading Edge Geomatics (LEG), one of the industry partners involved with the project, worked along with staff from the NSCC / AGRG to install the Airborne Hydrography AB Chiroptera II system into a Beechcraft King Air 90C fixed wing aircraft, to perform the team’s first ever data acquisition with the Topobathymetric system. Leading Edge Geomatics Wayne Richardson, a Positioning/Project Manager with LEG has provided us with a general overview on the initial data acquisition Flights using the AHAB Chiroptera II topobathymetric system along with some sample data from their test flights of Sable Island.
