Back to KAP

Tue, 04 Oct 2011

I spent a day with Paolo Paron (co-editor of our book on Geomorphological Mapping) kicking off a new kite aerial photography project. Paolo (who works at the UNESCO-IHE Institute for Water Education in Delft) is looking at monitoring morphological change at a beach in the Netherlands. KAP fits the bill so he is replicating the kit I have used for a variety of projects. Yesterday was a training day (with the UK basking in mid-summer weather!) which we spent running through the kites and ancillary equipment, then on to the rig design/setup, remote control and camera. We did three test flights just to see how it all worked. We were interested in vertical aerials, but inevitably got a few obliques (which are always more interesting to look at). Hope to have some more photography from the Netherlands in November.
