Waipouri Dam

Terrestrial Laser Scan

The Waipouri hydro-electric scheme includes a network of four dams and power stations. Woods undertook a 3d laser scan of the Waipouri dam structure and surrounding environment for engineering purposes. The dam structures have complex geometry and would prove difficult to acquire by using conventional methods and also overcomes risks associated with Health and Safety. Woods carried out both mesh and parametric modelling of this dam.
