The Bondgate Tower in Northumberland, UK, is a 15th-century monument that is in danger of collapse, and as such, sits on the “Historic England’s Heritage At Risk” register. As part of conservation efforts, the historic gatehouse was recently mapped using a drone, and the results are so incredible, you need to see them for yourself.
The aerial survey was conducted in less than a day, requiring only two flights, and without installing a scaffold structure – thereby saving time and money. Three Sixty Group conducted the survey on behalf of the Northumberland Estates, the tower’s custodians. UK-based drone supplier Heliguy provided the surveyors with DJI M300 RTK and Zenmuse P1 photogrammetry camera for the mapping mission.
