Part 1: Terrestrial & Aerial Photogrammetry & LiDAR – Adrian Wilkinson (Land & Minerals Consulting Ltd) ( 2 December 2021)

This course is aimed at geoscientists and engineering geologists involved with desk studies, site characterisation and ground model development. It will provide an overview of the capabilities of these methods that are available for such assessments and the latest techniques. Topics covered will include the use of ground based photogrammetry, LiDAR, optical imagery and data acquisition platforms, using drones and the latest subsurface LiDAR and sonar survey techniques and applications for surveying natural cavities and mines. The presentations will give case histories on the use of the state-of-the-art methods in this technologically led and developing area of geoscience.

Topics covered will include the use of ground and aerial based photogrammetry, LiDAR, optical imagery and data acquisition platforms, using drones and the latest subsurface LiDAR and sonar survey techniques and applications for surveying natural cavities and mines. The presentations will give case histories on the use of the state-of-the-art methods in this technologically led and developing area of geoscience.

Adrian Wilkinson will be giving his talk on remote data acquisition using aerial data acquisition platforms using a range of drone types for photogrammetry, LiDAR and optical imagery to provide information for geological and geotechnical studies. He will show how geological mapping of remote faces can be carried out to provide joint discontinuity data for rock slope stability analysis and how long term rock slope monitoring has been carried out.

Recent case studies from the UK and overseas will be used to demonstrate the techniques and deliverables, including for recent surveys for the race tracks in Saudi Arabia and Senegal for ‘Extreme E’ Electric Rallying.


This course is aimed at practicing engineering geologists and geoenvironmental engineers involved with desk studies, site characterisation and ground model development. It will provide an overview of geospatial site appraisal and introduce the variety of digital data sets that are available for such assessments. Topics covered will include the use of LiDAR data, optical imagery and data acquisition platforms, and InSAR (Radar) techniques and applications.

Part 2: Geo-referenced Subsurface Laser Scanning & Sonar Surveying – Mark Hudson, Geoterra Ltd (9 December 2021)

This course is aimed at geoscientists and engineering geologists involved with desk studies, site characterisation and ground model development. It will provide an overview of the capabilities of these methods that are available for such assessments and the latest techniques. Topics covered will include the use of ground based photogrammetry, LiDAR, optical imagery and data acquisition platforms, using drones and the latest subsurface LiDAR and sonar survey techniques and applications for surveying natural cavities and mines. The presentations will give case histories on the use of the state-of-the-art methods in this technologically led and developing area of geoscience.

Mark Hudson will be giving his presentation on recent developments with Geospatial Engineering Innovations focussing on the subsurface laser scanning, multibeam sonar and remote photogrammetry geo-referenced surveying of voids and their deliverables for global geohazards.

Recent case studies will be used to demonstrate the techniques and deliverables, including gypsum mine voids, Thornegate, Carlisle, Limestone/coal mine voids, Edinburgh, Copper mine voids, Ecton Mine, Staffordshire, chalk mine voids, Pinner Wood School, Harrow, abandoned & collapsed railway tunnel, Bradford/Halifax, flooded coal mine voids, Kidsgrove Rail Station, Staffordshire, Tin mine voids, St Austell & Carbis Bay, Cornwall, a sinkhole/bellpit survey at Sappers Field, Wooburn, Buckinghamshire and remote confined space adit/culvert surveys at Folkestone Warren beneath Network Rail tracks.

An update on the speakers involvement with flooded sinkholes and mines Research & Development work on the UNEXMIN/UNEXUP project developing a remote multibeam sonar survey Artificial Intelligence robot, the recent TV5 documentary series on Sinkholes ‘Sucked to Death’ and ‘Sucked Under’ and remote drone surveys of mines via 150mm surface boreholes!
