Mexicable Gondola Survey // GoPro Hero 5 3D Model
Most of the imagery that I create uses drones, which is are awesome platform.
While researching things to do in Mexico City for a trip, I ran across an article describing a brand-new aerial tram/gondola that was built to reduce congestion in a busy canyon neighborhood. As I read through the article and looked at the photos, I realized that I could use the Gondola as an aerial platform for mapping - and create an awesome first-of-its-kind map of these neighborhoods.
Using a GoPro Hero 5 attached to the exterior of the Gondola with a suction cup, I ran the camera in time lapse mode, taking a shot every .5 seconds. The GoPro has GPS information (required for mapping), so all I had to do was a little post-processing, and the imagery could be processed as normal drone imagery!
I used DroneDeploy to process the imagery and hand groomed and exported the Point Clouds for upload here in Sketchfab - Enjoy!
