Water of Leith

Terrestrial Laser Scan - Dunedin

The Water of Leith is located in the northern part of Dunedin and runs through Otago University before reaching the Otago Harbour. As part of an investigation and design into flood protection works, a physical model was built at a 1:25 scale of portions of the Water of Leith. Woods were engaged to scan the physical model, create a mesh surface and provide comparison and comment as to the accuracy to the topographic survey cross sections.
