MulDiScan ­ Early detection of natural disasters

Scientists at the Fraunhofer Institute for Physical Measurement Techniques IPM and the Albert­Ludwigs­University Freiburg are working under the project name "MulDiScan" to predict better such as floods, landslides and forest fires in the future.

The collection of data are highly accurate measurements of the geometry based on light propagation measurements. For these measurements from the air, the MikroKopter is perfect to measure those just hard to reach landscapes. For the use in the air, a particularly lightweight laser scanner is used, which can detect the geometry of the terrain very effectively from the air.
