  • UAVs and Earthquake Reconnaissance: BYU Engineers Create 3D Models from Disaster Data

    44,091 views 3 months ago
    One week after a 6.2 earthquake struck central Italy, BYU engineers were called in to collect data about the deadly quake, using UAVs to collect data for GEER and the National Science Foundation. For the first time, the BYU team collected images of an entire city (Pescara Del Tronto) and created a 3D model that that can be studied, measured and manipulated by scientists. BYU civil engineering professor Kevin Franke says the models and data can be used to design better earthquake-resistant structures and to save lives. The first of the 3D models can be found at:
