ABSTRACT
In this paper we intend to investigate the development of the landfill Cristesti because it occupies a large area and it’s dimension are growing every year and it is placed very close to the town with the same name Cristesti, for the inhabitants creating an unpleasant environment to live in, despite the toxic air being emanated. For this we use two methods: One of this is the classical measurement with the GPS and the second method uses the tehnology of UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle), method based on photogrammetry, geodesy and GIS theories. After that we will process the data to get the pit area and volume using both methods and compare accuracy results, to test the plane abilities and show that this is a more suitable method for geodesy work. We will use the Agisoft PhotoScan software for proccessing the data, taken by the UAV’s onboard photographic camera, that means joining all photos in a single one, according to the marks at known groung locations resulting in a ortophotoplan and a 3D model of the terrain both used to measure the surface and volume of landfill. The volume is obtained from the altitude difference, since the plane will fly at two different altitudes. For the established GPS version the method will be “STOP and GO” and the processing soft will be AutoCAD. This was possible with the help of TeamNet which have provided a contest “THINK’N’DO – Eye in the sky”, to find a viable applicability for this drone, they liked our idea and they gave us a price for our work to use the UAV’s tehnology.
