TeroMovigo has won Lot 2 & 3 of the project “SUPPLY, INSTALLATION, CONFIGURATION, TESTING, COMMISSIONING OF IT EQUIPMENTS, DRONES, GNSS AND PERMANENT ESTABLISHMENT OF GNSS STATION AT EIGHT MUNCIPALITIES IN TIMOR-LESTE UNDER MINISTRY OF PLANNING & TERRITORY”.
This project is crucial for the new establishment of the National Geospatial Data Infrastructure (DNDG). Since these will be continuous operating stations, they will provide a significant improvement on the older Rede Geodésica Fundamental Timor-Leste (RGFTL) which was established in 2007. This older network was based on 8 stations across East-Timor but the only existing data was collected during a campaign. The capability to continuously provide in the future RTK corrections will be essential to make fully use of the new CORS.
For Lot 2 we will provide a DJI 300 RTK drone with LiDAR, together with training on how to operate the drone and analyse the data. For Lot 3, TeroMovigo will help to select the sites, build the pillars and install the equipment. Software packages to analyse the LiDAR and GNSS data will also be provided. In addition, courses will be provided to operate the network of 8 new GNSS stations and how to analyse the data using GAMIT. The project started in May 2022 and has a duration of 6 months.
TeroMovigo will provide training on how to operate drones and how to process data from RGB and LiDAR sensors. During the course, the following topics will be discussed:
- General concepts of photogrammetry for the use of drones
- Relationship between conventional digital photogrammetry, drones and LiDAR
- Drone Operation
- Rules and Regulations
- Mission Planning
- Data Processing
Concerning the operation of CORS and the associated GNSS data, the Training and Knowledge Transfer Plan is designed to:
- Understand the advantages and limitations associated with GNSS technology.
- Raise awareness and promote the use of the CORS network.
- Learn how to perform crustal deformation analysis.
The course will use the GAMIT/GLOBK and Hector software.
The instructors are members of the TeroMovigo team and have advanced training in the mission planning for and operations of drones together with the analysis of the data and have already given training in Africa, namely: Mozambique, Malawi and Nigeria. In addition, members of the TeroMovigo team were also involved in the development of projects using LiDAR and Drones in Portugal and Spain. These experiences are reflected in the high quality of the proposed teaching and teaching material and in the high standard of knowledge and skills of the team.
