Morenci & Sierrita Tailings UAS Mapping

Morenci, Arizona

Bowman Consulting provided unmanned aerial system (UAS) mapping and photogrammetry services for the Morenci and Sierrita Tailings Monitoring Programs. This project involved mapping of the tailings expansion starter dams. The scope for each project included one initial flight, two quarterly flights, one centerline flight and six centerline quarterly flights. Bowman set ground control as well as temporary QC (blind) ground control points to be used in QC checks during post-processing. Bowman also set permanent ground control points. Bowman consulting flew the mapping area utilizing our SenseFly eBee UAS and performed rapid checks of each flight.
