The Use Of Drones For Creating 3d Models Of Waterfalls And Bedrock Features, With Particular Attention To Process And Teaching Applications, Campbell F. Bortel

The Research and Scholarship Symposium

This study explored the use of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) to model and 3D print waterfalls and bedrock features for use as classroom teaching aids and for possible use in hydrology experiments involving flumes. To achieve the goals of this study, two waterfalls and one bedrock feature were photographed and 3D printed. The waterfalls were Ludlow Falls in Miami County, OH, and Cedar Cliff Falls in Greene County, OH. The bedrock feature was Lizard Head Rock near Sedona, AZ. The UAS platform that was flown was the DJI Mavic Pro quadcopter. A camera mounted on the copter had both videography ...
