Leading national thinking on politics, government & public policy through Open Access research

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations. This international angle is reflected in the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) which conducts comparative research on public policy. Meanwhile, the Centre for Energy Policy provides independent expertise on energy, working across multidisciplinary groups to shape policy for a low carbon economy.

    Abstract

    Visual inspection is an integral part of Condition and Class surveys, with the results comprising of the surveyors’ opinion, documented by a sum of pictures indicating areas of interest. Although this way provides the most essential information, the communication of the results may be difficult, since isolated images cannot provide the context. Photogrammetry exploits pictorial data to provide 3D models, with a high level of accuracy and is not an uncommon method in the maritime environment. Use of such methods to support visual survey activities is examined in this work, providing the methodology for the data collection, which is structured in an algorithmic way, to enable realization by automated means (robots). The 3D model is provided, along with accuracy results.
