Golden Pipeline - 3D Scan Inspection

Pipeline Inspection

Mission Summary

  • Goal:  Determine of drone imagery is effective for pipeline inspection purposes
  • Tech: DJI Phantom 3 4K, Drone Deploy
  • Conditions: Early Afternoon and sunny
  • Outcome: Drone imagery enables quick and accurate analysis and it also shows the larger field-scale trends that can go unseen at ground level 

It was a gorgeous winter day so we packed the family up (along with a thermos and tea) and headed east to the fringes of the wheat belt with the aim of finding an un-shaded length of the iconic Golden Pipeline to scan. I have previously had two failed attempts of scanning the pipeline, both of these done closer to the city and in areas with far more tree cover.
