Aerial Photogrammetry in Remote Locations
- Conference Paper
Building energy modelling (BEM) results are highly affected by the surrounding environment, due to the impact of solar radiation on the site. Hence, modelling the context is a crucial step in the design process. This is challenging when access to the geometrical data of the built and natural environment is unavailable as in remote villages. The acquisition of accurate data through conventional surveying proves to be costly and time consuming, especially in areas with a steep and complex terrain. Photogrammetry using drone-captured aerial images has emerged as an innovative solution to facilitate surveying and modeling. Nevertheless, the workflow of translating the photogrammetry output from data points to surfaces readable by BEM tools proves to be tedious and unclear. This paper presents a streamlined and reproducible approach for constructing accurate building models from photogrammetric data points to use for architectural design and energy analysis in early design stage projects.
