senseFly eBee Used to Assist Earthquake Relief in Kathmandu, Nepal

On April 27, 2015, just two days after a 7.9 magnitude earthquake rocked the mountainous terrain of Nepal, the international disaster first responders at Global Dirt deployed to the heavily damaged villages outside of Kathmandu. Working alongside the UN and other NGO partners, Global Dirt’s mission has been to provide high resolution aerial imagery of the disaster zone to assist in early recovery and rescue.

To this end, the team decided to work with a senseFly eBee to conduct wide area assessments and to generate 3D point clouds. Their data will allow rescuers to identify cubic tonnage of debris for removal as well as manage humanitarian aid distribution and camp organization.

“We chose the eBee due to its light weight but ruggedness as well as the ease of flying and high quality of processed images,” explains Adam Marlatt, President of Global Dirt. “It’s a complete solution that allows our teams to focus on reaching the hardest hit areas while knowing that the equipment will perform in the field.”

After a successful operation with the eBee, Global Dirt has ordered two more units to assist in their on-going projects across the globe.
