The Lake Macquarie City Council were looking to obtain accurate data utilising remote sensing for the Lake Macquarie Local Government area.
This data was to be used for Council Asset Management, Environmental Sustainability Tracking and Vegetation Canopy Cover Analysis.
For this they required the following products:
Anditi provides a complete solution for Councils that wish to engage the services of a remote sensing specialist. We have expertise in aerial and remote data collection, analysis and interpretation. From LiDAR and aerial Imagery data we are able to extract useful information and generate the custom products.
Using Anditi’s proprietary analytics Engine to run our specialised classification algorithms, we generated a high quality Ground Elevation Model for the entirety of the Lake Macquarie LGA. Through further analysis of the Digital Elevation Model we were able to generate overland flow paths and identify the locations of drainage lines, drainage pits, bridges and culverts.
The Anditi vegetation classification algorithms allowed us to identify all vegetation above 3m to create a canopy tree height and stratification model which defined individual tree canopies, grouped tree canopies and subsequently individual tree heights as well as canopy perimeters.
With the products generated by Anditi from LiDAR and imagery, Lake Macquarie council was able to:
Terrain modelling for slope and flood analysis
Precise vegetation analysis for target monitoring
Asset identification and locations for asset optimisation
