Virtually Reconstructing Lima: Drones, Community Mapping and 3D printers

The Bartlett Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis, the Bartlett Development Planning Unit and the Swiss NGO Drone Adventures, joined local partners in Lima from the 2nd to the 11th of February to map the two case study areas of Barrios Altos and José Carlos Mariátegui. Communities from Lima engaged in a mapping expedition using cutting edge technologies such as mapping drones, to explore new innovative 3D mapping pathways for areas that are undergoing an otherwise 'invisible' change.




Capturing and visualizing the current view of the city opens up possibilities for a more complete understanding of the environment we live in, leading towards a participatory and sustainable planning process. The first workshop was successfully completed, and the results are fascinating. The team is currently in Lima to engage in a second mapping workshop, and is working closely with Fora Ciudades Para La Vida, and community organisations.

The drone outputs were sent remotely to London from Lima, in order to be 3D printed. The aim is to create an installation suitable for community planning purposes in the two areas. The 3D outputs are converted into meshes and are then printed using a Makerbot 2 Replicator.

  8. It's amazing how far the drone techonoly went in the last few years, and it will go much further in the following couple of years. From aerial filming and mapping, to drone racing and delivering a pizza with a drone... Who know what awaits us in the future when it comes to drones! But, in the meantime, if you want to find out more on the topic of aerial filming and mapping, I suggest checking out this article: http://mydronelab.com/best-pick/best-drone-for-filming.html

  10. The significance of a prototype in the product and services advancement cycle can not be weakened. 3d Printer Hub. Among the vital stages of the product formulation cycle is that of making a physical design based on the item layout.
