Dehradun Smart City
Progressive people induce an urge for growth and cities grow with them. The budding potential of the city Dehradun has been realized recently. GarudaUAV conducted a drone based aerial survey in the beautiful Doon situated in the hilly terrains of the Shivaliks to identify the hotspots of development and the potential niches that can absorb the ascending possibilities of growth in the city. To aid the purpose, the topography of the area was mapped and the huge data was processed to study the existing building heights, their flooring scheme based on building footprint and the land under encroachment was verified against the government land records. The 2D ortho-photos, DSM and 3d point cloud data were used as the basis for further analysis.
