RAF Lyneham

16th January, 2013

LandScope have recently completed a topographical survey of RAF Lyneham in preparation for its conversion to a defence technical training centre scheduled to be operational in 2015.  The base, which is over 470 hectares in size, was one of the busiest military airfields in Europe before it was decommissioned. 

The survey was completed over a 5 week period in September and October 2012 using traditional total station and GNSS survey methods. The model was augmented with the use of LandScope’s mobile mapping system, autoMAP, including 3D LiDAR data and panoramic photography from which additional topographical and other data has been extracted.
