Source(s):  Terra Drone Corporation

KazUAV, a group company of Japan-based Terra Drone Corporation, has been supporting the World Bank in its initiative to build sustainable school infrastructure in the Republic of Kyrgyzstan. As part of the General-Purpose Simulation Program (GPSS) under the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR) grant-funding mechanism of the World Bank, KazUAV has surveyed and mapped Kyrgyz schools for a pilot project.

A highly-detailed database of the educational infrastructure facilities – consisting of geographic coordinates, aerial imagery, orthophotomaps, and 3D models of the school buildings – has been created by KazUAV to help the World Bank make better decisions for improving the safety and functional conditions of schools in Kyrgyzstan.

Using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) or drones from KazUAV allowed the World Bank to get a complete picture of the current condition of the school façade, including the presence of potential loss of integrity in the wall and roof structures. By inspecting the surrounding area of the schools, KazUAV was also able to determine the ease of access for emergency transport services as well as the presence or absence of obstructions like fences and wetlands, etc.

Dmitriy Ivanov, Director, KazUAV, says, “Collection of accurate and comparable data with drones for construction of photomaps, 3D modeling, and real-time monitoring, plays an important role in monitoring and analyzing the current state of sites and territories, as well as the operational situation in any given area. Given the multifaceted capabilities of modern UAVs, as well as the successful experience of their operations for several years by the KazUAV team in different climatic zones and under different weather conditions, I’m positive that their use can be highly-effective for the World Bank for solving a wide range of tasks.”
