As a result of one of Taiwan’s largest landslides, more than 130 million cubic meters of rock and debris blocked the Chingshui Channel and formed a landslide-dammed lake. Continuous environmental changes and geomorphic evolution in the landslide area, combined with water hazards, required significant security measures to ensure the safety of people and property. The project team needed comprehensive reality modeling technology to periodically survey and monitor the dammed lake.
NTUT selected ContextCapture to process drone-captured images captured over eight aerial missions and established high-resolution digital terrain and reality models to provide a visual impression of the changes in the area over the years. Using Bentley’s application, they determined that the area continues to deform, so they developed a web-based digital twin accessible to researchers and stakeholders to continually evaluate the site and determine potential measures for ensuring public safety.
