A video crew follows senseFly's team of engineers as they mark a historic surveying milestone by using eBee mapping drones to photograph the epic Matterhorn, before generating an astounding 3D model of "the most beautiful mountain". More on senseFly drones: http://www.sensefly.com/

The mission involved the coordination of several teams with multiple eBee UAVs taking over 2,200 images in 11 flights, all within a few hours on a sunny alpine morning. The results? A stunning high-definition 3D point-cloud comprised of 300 million points, covering an area of over 2,800 hectares and with an average resolution of 20 cm.

A special thanks to our partners Pix4D (http://www.pix4d.com) for the creation of the 3D model, Drone Adventures (http://www.droneadventures.org) for mission coordination, and MapBox (http://www.mapbox.com) for online visualisation.
