JDMA conducted a reservoir erosion assessment for AAFC on Harris Reservoir in Southwest Saskatchewan. In order to measure bank recession rates, JDMA used a small UAV to capture vertical aerial imagery of the shorezone. Ground control points were collected along the shore to control the imagery and an ortho-mosaic model was built in softcopy photogrammetry. The ortho-mosaicked image was compared with historic airphotos and available high resolution satellite imagery to work out bank recession rates on the reservoir. JDMA was able to help the client, AAFC, determine the amount of bank recession that has occurred as a result of this survey. This directly helped AAFC plan for engineering of the shoreline to further protect it from erosive wave action.
