Use Case - Terrain Model of a ski arena

Skybase / New Zealand

The setting

Mt Hutt Ski Area

One week before snowfall Skybase received the order.

For the preparation of the ski slopes a precise terrain model of the ski area was required.

With the help of the Tron and the Yellow Scan Surveyor Ultra LIDAR the terrain model was captured within 50 minutes flight time. The processed data and maps (point cloud, DTM, DSM, shape files) now helps the snow groomers to move the snow and build better terrain parks.
