After a year of owning Pix4D and aerial mapping over 100 crash sites, we decided to tackle the Vulcan statue. This was performend with 2 licensed pilots and 2 visual observers. We are currently processing almost 1000 photographs to create a digital model of Vulcan.
When we were looking into purchasing Pix4d, we found this video of the digitization of Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Once I saw that, I knew I wanted to do the same with the Vulcan statue in Birmingham. I have been driving past Vulcan my entire life (50+ years).
