Tankardstown Mine 3D Scan & Survey

Sunday 22nd September saw me embarking on an interesting and challenging project.

Working with Deri Jones of derij.co.uk, we set about Surveying and 3D lasar scanning of Tankardstown Mine in Co. Waterford, Ireland. coppercoastgeopark

The project was very much a ‘hands on’ process, where we found ourselves underground for 3 days using a Faro 3D Laser Scanner  and a Leica Total Station to produce a very detailed and accurate map of the mines. I will then use the point cloud data (PREVIOUS EXAMPLE FROM DJA HERE), produced from the lasar scanner to create a 3D visualization of the above ground workings at the mine head.

Also as part of the project, Deri is producing interesting panorama images of the major features above and below ground, an example of which can be found HERE

Inset into these panorama’s will be ‘clickable’ more detail sections of the site to add depth and information to this innovative image format.

The whole process was made bearable and even enjoyable with the company, guidance and tolerance of our underground Mines expert, Hugh Ratzer.

And the local knowledge of Sean Corcoran of The Art Hand, and Brian Fleming were, of course, invaluable.
