Mangsen Mapping works together with many surveyors and survey firms to provide orthoimages, DEMs, contours and planimetric drawings.
A French city has many bridges but no engineering plans for them. The bridges are so old that some of them had no plans archived while others were destroyed in the World Wars. Mangsen Mapping was hired to produce high-resolution 3D models and orthofacades. The 3D models were used for visual inspections. The orthofacades were imported into AutoCAD so a technician could create as-built engineering drawings.
A local water authority in the Netherlands was charged with locating outbreaks of blue algae in the city's canals. Chlorophyll reflects infrared and red edge light strongly, so the water authority's drone pilot collected drone images with a Micasense RedEdge sensor. Mangsen Mapping generated a five-band orthophoto that was used to identify plant material that was otherwise not visible in a standard RGB orthophoto.
LUCON CATHEDRAL 3D MODEL
Formally known as La Cathedral de Notre Dame de l'Assomption de Lucon, the Lucon Cathedral is one of our most impressive and favorite 3D models.
See the 3D model here.
LARGE AREA DRONE MAPPING
Covering just over 30 square kilometers, these products (orthoimage, DEM, hillshade and contour maps) were used to prospect for gold in the Western USA.
MINNEAPOLIS UNREST AFTERMATH AND RECOVERY
One of Mangsen Mapping’s partners was asked to generate an orthophoto of the area of Minneapolis that was affected by the civil unrest in the summer of 2020. The end product was printed on a 14 feet long canvas and used to plan reconstruction efforts.
Agricultural mapping is a common application of drone mapping. One unique client of ours, though, took it to another level by using the orthophoto to annotate pathways through crop rows. Weed-cutting robots followed these annotations to, well, cut weeds.
HAYFIELD DRAINAGE MAPPING
A farmer was having trouble with a wet hayfield. Hay wouldn’t dry due to standing water in the field. Mangsen Mapping collected photogrammetric data of the cleared field and generated a drainage network map. The farmer installed corrugated pipes based on the drainage network. He estimates that he bales an additional $2200 of hay each year thanks to the water that drains through the pipes.
