3D Powerline Vegetation Risk Analysis
This is a small example project for the 3D Powerline Vegetation Risk Analysis video.
Being able to detect Risk areas around power lines in an automated way is a game changer for energy network operators. This Rule Set provides a solution to extract these Risk areas in an automated, accurate and less time consuming way than traditional manual assessment. The idea of this project was to develop a rule set which classifies points of a point cloud into different Risk areas based on the 3D distance to a power line. The whole workflow within eCognition is automated, meaning you only need a point cloud as input and the Rule Set takes care of creating the deliverables, in this case a classified point cloud with Risk classes and the power line detected.
