Drone Photography and photogrammetry mapping - CGI
The uses of drones is becoming so vast in such a short period of time, it is getting difficult to see where we will be in a year
We have a secret passion at Aeroviews, and that is Archaeology and History, and so getting the opportunity to map out a very peculiar historic building called Paxton Towers for CGI was a very interesting prospect.
We also have line up mapping out other lesser known sites in Wales which we are very much looking forward to such as the Dolaucothi Gold Mines
This again has highlighted for us what an incredible tool drones are.
Paxton's Tower is a Neo-Gothic folly erected in honour of Lord Nelson. It is situated on a hilltop near Llanarthney in the Towy Valley, Carmarthenshire, Wales. It is a visitor attraction that can be combined with a visit to the nearby National Botanic Garden of Wales. Its hilltop location provides views over the Botanic Gardens and the Towy valley. The tower is under care of the National Trust for Places of Historic Interest or Natural Beauty. The tower is 36 feet high. The lower part of the tower is triangular in shape with a turret at each corner. On the first floor there is a banqueting room. Coloured glass from one of the windows can now be seen in the Carmarthen Museum at Abergwili. On the second floor there is a hexagonal prospect room surrounded by roof terraces. The windows to the prospect room are now bricked up. There is currently public access to the first floor banqueting room via stairs in one of the corner turrets.
Drone Photography can be used to show the surroundings of a historical site, but also the construction, its form, the architecture and also the height, elevation of the buildings and the grounds upon which it has been built
