Newcastle University is developing advanced computer modelling to assess the flood risk of individual properties using LiDAR data and oblique aerial photography from Bluesky. The project will use Artificial Intelligence to extract information from other datasets, including old reports and flood asset registers, and bring this together with weather and traffic sensors, for example, to provide a dynamic online platform for hyper local, near real time flood risk assessments.

Water sector solution provider MWH Treatment is using the latest 3D computer modelling technology to improve the delivery of major construction projects across the UK. Created by aerial mapping company Bluesky International, models are used throughout the lifecycle of projects; from the production of animations at the concept stage right through to Virtual Reality (VR) simulations for health and safety training. Derived from the most up to date and accurate aerial photograph
Bluesky International will use aircraft mounted LiDAR sensors laser scanners to create a highly detailed 3D map of the whole of the Northern Ireland coastline. Working on behalf of the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (DAERA), the LiDAR survey will be used to create the first ever complete baseline, which, it is hoped, will underpin recording of coastal change and help identify the rate at which the coastline is changing as a result of climate change.
