Mark Wijnberg Land Surveyors in conjunction with 3dronemapping.com, completed an aerial survey of a river valley in a remote section of Western Uganda. The area is found on the Eastern slopes of the Rwenzori Mountains, close to the Congolese border.
The purpose of the survey was to determine the feasibility of the construction of a hydro-power plant and its environmental and social implications. The survey area dimensions were approximately 7km by 3km and the altitude varied over 350m. Other specifications included orthoimagery, DTM of 0.25m spacing, 0.5m contours, a hydrographic survey of the river profile, installation of various benchmarks and all data represented on an AutoCAD drawing.
