Houmas House Aerial Photos - 12/4/19 https://www.louisianahelicam.com/blog/2019/12/houmas-house-aerial-photos-December-2019 Houmas House Plantation and Gardens has reclaimed its position as Crown Jewel of Louisiana's River Road.

Through the vision and determination of Kevin Kelly, who fulfilled a lifelong dream by acquiring the property in the Spring of 2003, the mansion today reflects the best parts of each period in its rich history alongside the big bend in the Mississippi River.

The first owners of the plantation were the indigenous Houmas Indians, who were given a land grant to occupy the fertile plain between the Mississippi and Lake Maurepas to the north.

The Houmas sold the land to Maurice Conway and Alexander Latil in the mid 1700's
The original French Provincial house that Latil erected on the property in is situated directly behind the Mansion, adjoined by a carriageway to the grand home described during its antebellum heyday as "The Sugar Palace." The original home was later used as living quarters for the staff that served the great house. 

By the time of the Louisiana Purchase in 1803, the plantation was established and producing sugar.

In 1810, Revolutionary War hero Gen. Wade Hampton of Virginia purchased the property and shortly thereafter began construction on the Mansion. However, it was not until 1825 when Hampton's daughter, Caroline, and her husband, Col. John Preston, took over the property that the grand house truly began to take shape.

Construction on the Mansion was completed in 1828. At the same time, Houmas House began to build its sugar production and continued to increase its land holdings, which ultimately grew to 300,000 acres.

Irishman John Burnside bought the plantation in 1857 for $1 million. A businessman and a character, Burnside increased production of sugar until Houmas House was the largest producer in the country, actively working the crop on 98,000 acres. During the Civil War, Burnside saved the Mansion from destruction at the hands of advancing Union forces by declaring immunity as a subject of the British Crown. In addition to building a railway to carry his products to market —"The Sugar Cane Train (1862)" — Burnside, a bachelor, is also said to have offered payment to any parents in the parish who would name their sons "John."

An avid sportsman who wagered heavily in horse races, Burnside once secretly purchased a champion thoroughbred back East with the intent of defeating the steeds of fellow local businessmen in a big race. He quietly slipped the racehorse into the billiard room of the Mansion where it was "stabled" until Burnside's surprise was unveiled at the starting line and hailed in the winner's circle.

Houmas House flourished under Burnside's ownership, but it was under a successor, Col. William Porcher Miles that the plantation grew to its apex in the late 1800's when it was producing a monumental 20 million pounds of sugar each year.

In 1927, the Mississippi came out of its banks in the epic "great flood." While Houmas House was spared, the surrounding areas were inundated. The ensuing economic havoc was but a prelude to the devastation of the Great Depression just two years later.

Houmas House Plantation withered away. The Mansion closed and fell into disrepair, a condition in which it remained until 1940 when Dr. George B. Crozat purchased it.

Crozat bought Houmas House to be a summer home away from his native New Orleans. He renovated the property with the intent to give it a more "Federal" look than the stately Greek Revival style in which it was conceived. The structure was painted white inside and out. Crown moldings and ceiling medallions were removed and both interior and exterior forms and finishes were simplified.

Eventually, the Crozat heirs opened the property to tourists. In 1963, the defining Bette Davis film "Hush, Hush Sweet Charlotte" was shot in the property. The room in which Ms. Davis stayed while filming is preserved as part of today's Houmas House tour.

In addition to the Mansion and Gardens, history is also reflected in the many antique furnishings and works of art that grace the Houmas House tour. Distinguished by its two Garconierre, the Mansion exudes the warmth of a home (it's the owner's active residence), while proudly portraying its role as a landmark in American history.

Enjoy!

Bannister Energy Solutions | Sparta Re-use Facility | West Monroe, Louisiana https://www.louisianahelicam.com/blog/2018/4/bannister-energy-solutions-sparta-re-use-facility-west-monroe-louisiana In 1996, city officials in West Monroe noticed an alarming trend: water was being overdrawn from the Sparta Aquifer by eighteen million gallons per day (18MGD) beyond the recharge rate and if this trend was not reversed, Ouachita Parish and sixteen (16) other parishes in Northeast Louisiana would lose their source of fresh water for potable water consumption, agriculture and industry. The Sparta Aquifer is the primary fresh water supply for nearly eight hundred thousand (800,000) people and the industries that employ them. Of three major cones of depression in the aquifer, the most significant was directly under the paper mill in West Monroe. Depletion of freshwater would cause saltwater encroachment and become unusable.

The City owns a wastewater treatment facility that provides service to approximately forty-five thousand (45,000) people: the City and West Ouachita Sewer District #5, and discharged an annual average of seven million gallons per day (7MGD). The goal was to provide quality process water to the largest user of the aquifer which was the local paper mill, Graphic Packaging. The mill used ten million gallons per day (10 MGD) from each, the aquifer and the Ouachita River. The cost of increasing the draw and treatment of river water to discontinue the draw of well water at the mill could pose economic hardship for the area. After years of research and negotiations, the City built a one million gallon per day (1MGD) pilot plant which was run for one full year to prove that this system could effectively and economically produce water which would meet the requirements of the mill which produces food contact paper. After one full year of treating sewer water with characteristics that change seasonally to drinking water quality that met all Environmental Protection Agency primary and secondary drinking water standards, the mill agreed, by contract, to accept this treated water for use as process water. Also by the terms of the contract, gallon for gallon, the amount of water the City could provide would be equal to the amount of well water that the mill would no longer draw from the aquifer.

The City immediately sought and secured funding to build a twenty million dollar ($20,000,000.00) facility capable of treating ten to twelve million gallons per day (10-12 MGD) of sewer. The process utilizes proven technology in an innovative way to meet all drinking water standards. The process consists of the treated effluent from the existing wastewater plant (one hundred acres of baffled oxidation ponds and rock filters- hydrograph controlled released) then to the new Sparta Reuse Facility. Two organic polymers, cationic and anionic, are used in flocculation of the solids, then to dissolved air flotation (DAF) units where the primarily algae total suspended solids are skimmed from the surface and returned to the oxidation ponds. No sludge is produced in this process. The cleared water from the DAF units is then pumped into pressure vessels containing virgin bituminous activated carbon to remove any total dissolved solids, metals or other contaminants. Water is then pumped into two (2), one hundred thousand (100,000) gallon storage tanks and is disinfected with chlorine. Five million gallons per day (5MGD) is then pumped to the mill for use as process water only. The Sparta facility also uses the water it produces water for backwash of the carbon vessels.

The facility was built and complete in January 2012. We have reduced the draw on the Sparta by five million gallon per day and are negotiating with other sewer districts and communities to add on to the system to achieve the goal of twelve million gallons per day. The benefits are two-fold because we also no longer discharge treated sewer to the river except minimal amounts during extreme weather events. The facility has been recognized with nine national, regional and state awards, most notably from The White House, “Champions of Change” award in 2012.

Talladega National Forest | Cheaha State Park https://www.louisianahelicam.com/blog/2017/11/talladega-national-forest-cheaha-state-park I recently travelled through Talladega National Forest while shooting several aerial photography projects in the North Alabama area.  I decided to go back to the summit at Cheaha State Park to stay at the park lodge one evening.  

Nature

Located in the middle of the Talladega National Forest, the park is ideal for access to the Kentuck ORV-ATV Trail. Additionally, the park is home to the Cheaha Trailhead of the Pinhoti Trail, which connects with the Appalachian Trail and accesses the Odum Scout Trail, and the Chinnabee Silent Trail. Here hikers can experience tranquility, native wildlife and beautiful waterfalls.

Dining

Delicious, country-style food combined with panoramic views of the Talladega National Forest and valley below are found at the park’s restaurant. A traditional Sunday buffet is also available.  Catering is available in the park for pavilions and Bald Rock lodge contact our sales staff 256-488-5885 (let us handle the grilling or cooking, so you can enjoy the park!).  

Accommodations

CastlePost | Martin Castle | The Kentucky Castle - Lexington, Kentucky https://www.louisianahelicam.com/blog/2017/11/castle-post-martin-castle-the-kentucky-castle-lexington-kentucky I recently had a chance to photograph and stay at CastlePost just outside of Lexington, Kentucky.  CastlePost is often referred to as "Martin Castle", or "The Kentucky Castle."  It was a surreal experience and one of the most beautiful places I've ever photographed.

Martin Castle was built by Rex and Caroline Bogaert Martin in 1969 after returning from a German vacation.  They were inspired by the architecture and many famous buildings that they'd visited while in Europe.  The Martins divorced before the castle was completed and it sat unfinished for many years.

The structure was sold to a Miami attorney in 2003 but the structure burned during renovations during 2004.  Reconstruction was completed in 2008.

The castle was purchased again in 2017 by a group of investors.

I stayed in a "chalet", often referred to as a "turret":

The castle sits on working 55 acre farm and has a farm-to-table restaurant.  The food was excellent.   

The rooftop terrace is perfect for weddings, parties, and any other large gathering:

Here is a collection of images taken while walking the grounds that evening and the next morning:

Drones for Agricultural Spraying https://www.louisianahelicam.com/blog/2017/9/louisiana-drones-for-agricultural-spraying The following is from our September article for a national pulp and paper publication

DRONES FOR AGRICULTURAL SPRAYING

I can remember my first radio-controlled airplane project like it was yesterday.  The small kit consisted of balsa wood, monokote covering, and a small glow fuel engine.  My goal was not to become an RC enthusiast.  You see, I grew up on a sugar cane farm and the local crop dusting service was less than a mile from our home.  I spent much time riding my old BMX bicycle to and from the airport.  I was fascinated with the two Air Tractor planes that took off many times during the course of the day.  The goal that I had in mind as a ten year old was to provide a spraying service for local gardeners.

I had it all planned out.  Straws were glued to the wing tips and several “TeeJet” spray nozzles were taken from my family’s farm shop (thanks to the help of my trusty BMX bike).  An extra RC fuel tank would be used for chemical storage. 

The project, however, never left the ground.

Fast forward thirty years later.  We now have the ability to spray small-acreage tracts with both single and multi-rotor aircraft.  This can be done manually (by row) or by flying an automated GPS grid.  Most states require a commercial applicators license in addition to an FAA Part 107 certification. 

 

The Yamaha RMAX, a single rotor autonomous helicopter, has been used for spraying crops since the 1990’s.  The RMAX is almost 12ft in length, weighs just over 200lbs, and has a chemical tank capacity of up to 68lbs.  The machine has an average flight duration of 1hr.

In 2016, DJI introduced the Agras MG-1, a large octocopter with a 2.6ga chemical tank.  The MG-1 has a hovering time of 10 – 24 minutes depending on payload. 

The Gaia 160 is another large multirotor spray drone.  The 160 has a 6 gallon chemical capacity and a flight duration of around 18 minutes.

Stay tuned for more articles as well delve into the world of crop spraying with unmanned systems.

Construction: In-House Drone Program vs. Drone Services Provider https://www.louisianahelicam.com/blog/2017/8/construction-in-house-drone-program-vs-drone-services-provider This is a good article by Gene Blinkov regarding the outsourcing of drones in the construction industry.  The original article can be found HERE

 

As drones have grown in popularity the affordability of drones for day-to-day use has greatly improved. Yet, to complete the type of work expected on construction sites and analyze the collected data appropriately, companies should know that initial costs for drone operation could reach up to $50,000. After the initial cost companies will incur additional time & expenses for the operation, data processing software subscriptions and insurance to name a few.

Companies need to consider the type of equipment they need, as well as the needed accessories for monitoring and surveying. Accessories include camera sensors, batteries, tablets, protective gear etc. And the costs don't stop there. In addition to the drones and accessories, companies will need to find the right kind of software to analyze the data being collected. The primary four areas of expense are equipment, accessories, software and pilot training.

Taking on such responsibilities as a company in order to have an in-house drone program can be a huge burden that hinders momentum. In addition to the initial start up costs of developing an in-house drone program and operator costs, companies will have to consider liability and litigation risk. The Federal Aviation Administration requires a commercial insurance policy that covers liability up to one million dollars. Companies would have to check with their insurance carriers if they even offer commercial drone liability insurance, as it's a relatively new area. Insurance, if it is available, can be expected to run another $2,000-3000 a year.

How the FAA Is Getting Involved

If the cost of operation and gear isn't enough, new Federal Aviation Administration operating rules add to cost and training time for commercial operation of drones. A commercially used drone can only be operated by a certified UAV pilot or observed by one. Drone operators must man the drone within their visual line of sight, without any aid such as the use of binoculars. Training for certification includes an exam for the applicants' knowledge of regulations, airspace classifications, aviation weather sources and emergency procedures. The exam itself is not difficult - but knowing your way around flying a drone above a ton of expensive equipment and other obstacles takes a lot of practice.

In-house vs. Service Provider Partnership

With so much cost to consider and the need for trained individuals, partnering with drone professionals eases a lot of the stress and can save companies money. By working with outside company professionals, companies will save money every month, the liability will remain with the drone professionals and there's no need to train or hire personnel to operate the drone. Flights and inspections can be planned ahead of time and the data collected and analyzed can be delivered to project managers, lenders and investors incredibly fast!

 

*  On a personal note, the work that I've seen from in-house drone operations is quite bland and lifeless when compared to that of a professional.

Unmanned Aerial Systems | Fixed Wing vs Multirotor https://www.louisianahelicam.com/blog/2017/6/unmanned-aerial-systems-fixed-wing-vs-multirotor The following is from our June article for a national pulp and paper publication

Multirotor “drone” systems have become so popular over the past five years that many have forgotten or discredited fixed wing unmanned aircraft. 

Multirotor systems serve as a convenient option for aerial photography, video, and mapping applications. 

Common benefits:

  • Vertical take-off and land (VTOL):  Multirotor aircraft can take off and land without the need for a linear flight path
  • Hovering or extremely slow flight:  Multirotor aircraft can hover in one position or perform maneuvers at very slow speeds
  • Storage/travel:  Multirotor aircraft typically have a small footprint and can be stored in a smaller space than fixed wing aircraft

That said, fixed wing aircraft can be more beneficial with respect to both surveillance/reconnaissance and mapping applications.

Common benefits:

  • Flight duration: Fixed wing UAS have an average battery duration of 40 minutes to greater than 1 hour
  • Larger coverage area: A fixed wing UAS can perform a mapping grid for an area of 500 acres or greater in a single flight
  • Safety: Most fixed wing UAS are constructed from lightweight styrofoam and have a very slow glide characteristic

Fixed wing UAS examples:

Finwing Penguin (owned by Louisiana Helicam)

RVJET (owned by Louisiana Helicam)

Sensefly Ebee

Kiroli Park | Civitan Smiles Park | West Monroe, LA | Project Update - 5/27/17 https://www.louisianahelicam.com/blog/2017/5/kiroli-park-civitan-smiles-park-west-monroe-louisiana-may-2017 The West Monroe Civitan Smiles Park (Smiles Park) project began with the vision of the West Monroe Civitan Club to create a playground specifically for children with disabilities. After collaborating with Shane’s Inspiration for the development of the playground the Civitan Club realized that Smiles Park shouldn’t be just for ”children with disabilities”, but a playground for all children. Thus, Smiles Park has been designed as an inclusive playground that will be attractive and safe for all children to simply play together without physical or social barriers.

The Civitan Club is a civic club of 40 local businessmen. The club was chartered by Civitan International in 1959. Civitans are everyday people within your community who come together to support organizations devoted to the improvement of lives of children and adults with developmental disabilities. 
The club's annual fund-raiser, the Ark-La-Miss Fair and Livestock Show, is held annually in September. Fair proceeds of more than $50,000 are donated annually to local community non-profit projects, including the new Smiles Park at Kiroli.

In March 2013, the West Monroe Civitan Club and the City of West Monroe entered into a Cooperative Endeavor Agreement that began to make Smiles Park a reality. The club agreed to spearhead the playground project and made an initial contribution of $200,000.00 toward the playground construction. The City of West Monroe provided a location within Kiroli Park and agreed to construct a fully accessible pavilion to accompany the playground. The City also agreed to accept ownership and maintenance of the playground once construction is complete. Shane’s Inspiration, a non-profit organization dedicated to the establishment of inclusive playgrounds across the country and overseas, has designed the playground and will coordinate outreach and education programs to help fulfill the park’s mission…bringing all children together to play!

Drones | In-house vs. Outsource https://www.louisianahelicam.com/blog/2017/5/drone-company-in-house-vs-outsource This article is my latest monthly submission for an international pulp and paper publication:

 

Since the Federal Aviation Administration established official UAS regulations in August of 2016, companies are now able to make legal decisions to incorporate UAS into their business.  While some larger companies have taken drone operations in house, many have decided to outsource the service to professional Drone Service Providers.

As a professional UAS operator of 13 years, you would expect me to make the obvious recommendation to outsource.  While true, my suggestion to outsource would remain unchanged even if I was an outsider to the drone business. 

My reasoning…

First and foremost, the drone pilot will need to study for and pass the FAA Part 107 exam in order to legally perform commercial work.  At the time of this writing, the Part 107 exam needs to be retaken every 24 months.  Some UAS companies are still operating under the Section 333 Exemption.  However, it appears as though the Part 107 process will be what is used in the long run.  According to the FAA, fines for illegal commercial use can be as high as $1100.00 per incident for the operator and $10,000 for the company that hired them.  Continue reading if you or your company is ok with keeping up with these regulations as they progress.

Second, you’ll need UAS-specific insurance in order to perform commercial operations.  This isn’t required by the FAA.  But, most standard general liability policies will not cover a drone-related accident.  UAS policies can be purchased on a per-flight basis or annually.  A $1M annual policy ranges from $800.00 to $1700.00 with various add-ons (waivers of subrogation, COI holder types, hull coverage, etc.).  A $4M policy is typically priced well over $3000.00 per year.

Third, let’s talk about pilot proficiency.  GPS stabilization has helped to lower the barriers to entry for drone pilots.  That said, GPS stabilization has also created an environment for stale/lifeless flying.  You’ll want to use a pilot that can fly the aircraft in a compelling fashion.  There are plenty of “floater” video examples on YouTube.  Fast motion, constant camera movement, and close-to-subject flight paths help to create more compelling product. 

At the end of the day, the drone is just a tool. It’s an artist’s paintbrush, a carpenter’s lathe, a surveyor’s transit, you get the drift.  Let’s take a wedding photographer, for example.  Sure, you could purchase a decent camera for $3500.00 and take the pictures on your own.  However, this is a forever moment and Aunt Mildred flew in from China to be there.  Do you trust yourself to obtain the same level of quality as a professional photographer/videographer?

Many of my clients made the decision to take drone operations in-house only to circle back around to outsourcing again. 

The most common reasoning:

  • Did not want to keep up with FAA regulations
  • Person in charge needs to return to original list of responsibilities
  • Lack of pilot proficiency (damaged equipment, lackluster quality)
  • Overhead

Kiroli Park | Smiles Park | West Monroe, LA - 5/5/17 https://www.louisianahelicam.com/blog/2017/5/kiroli-smiles-park-west-monroe-louisiana The West Monroe Civitan Smiles Park (Smiles Park) project began with the vision of the WMCC to create a playground specifically for children with disabilities. After
collaborating with Shane’s Inspiration for the development of the playground the WMCC realized that Smiles Park shouldn’t be just for ”children with disabilities”, but
a playground for all children. Thus, Smiles Park has been designed as an inclusive playground that will be attractive and safe for all children to simply play together
without physical or social barriers.

 

In March 2013 the WMCC and the City of West Monroe entered into a Cooperative Endeavor Agreement that began to make Smiles Park a reality. The WMCC agreed
to spearhead the playground project and made an initial contribution of $200,000.00 toward the playground construction. The City of West Monroe provided a location
within Kiroli Park and agreed to construct a fully accessible pavilion to accompany the playground. The City also agreed to accept ownership and maintenance of the
playground once construction is complete. Shane’s Inspiration, a non-profit organization dedicated to the establishment of inclusive playgrounds across the country
and overseas, has designed the playground and will coordinate outreach and education programs to help fulfill the park’s mission…bringing all children together to
play!

 

Because the dream of Smiles Park began with the WMCC’s work at the Ark-La-Miss Fair, Shane’s Inspiration designed the playground around a carnival theme. With
your help Smiles Park will become a place where all children and their families can experience the laughter, fun and joy of a day at the Fair…

Yamaha RMAX https://www.louisianahelicam.com/blog/2017/3/louisiana-yamaha-rmax-helicopter This blog post is based on our latest monthly article for a national pulp and paper publication.

Yamaha RMAX

The year was 2004 and I was still somewhat new to the world of radio-controlled helicopters.  I spent many hours perusing websites, forums, and online articles about various flying machines.  Although much of my time was centered on small consumer aircraft, I couldn’t refrain from being interested in one of the most impressive of all radio-controlled helicopters…the Yamaha RMAX.

The Yamaha RMAX was originally developed in 1997 for aerial agricultural spraying.  It is powered by a water-cooled 2-stroke engine and has a flight duration of around 1 hour.  The RMAX weighs just over 200lbs depending on payload configuration.

The RMAX was much larger and seemingly more sophisticated than our typical Sunday afternoon flyers.  However, a closer looked revealed it had similar components…only upscaled. 

Louisiana Helicam primarily used glow-fueled helicopters for the first several years.  Lithium polymer technology wasn’t far enough along to be considered a viable option at that time and I was really impressed with the RMAX’s duration when teamed with gasoline powered engines.  My continued research into the Yamaha RMAX eventually led me to make the switch from glow-fueled aircraft to gasoline powered aircraft, which were used until electric power became a more convenient option. 

My first gas-powered helicopter had a 23cc engine.  The engine utilized a pull rope rather than a 12v starter.  The machine was reliable, efficient, and had an average flight duration of around 20 minutes.

As of 2015, the RMAX had conducted over 2 million combined flight hours since its first launch.  The FAA added the RMAX to its list of approved UAS during that year.  They are commonly used for spraying, seeding, remote sensing, precision agriculture, frost mitigation and variable rate dispersal.

Aerial Drone Photogrammetry | February Mapping Blog | Part 2 https://www.louisianahelicam.com/blog/2017/2/louisiana-aerial-drone-photogrammetry-lidar-topo-mapping-part-2 Louisiana Helicam writes monthly publication articles regarding drone/UAV/UAS usage in the pulp and paper industry.  The February 2017 article is contained below:

In last month’s article, we got a brief overview of Photogrammetry and how it is used for various applications.  This month’s article will demonstrate the process that was used for a local church construction project.

Step 1:  Gather Aerial Imagery

Gathering the aerial image collection is the first step in the process.  There are many different types of drones, cameras, flight grid apps, and trigger control methods.  We won’t go into those details since the end result should involve images with adequate overlap regarding of what equipment is used.  Final output quality requirements will determine the amount of image overlap to be obtained during the shooting process.  Remember, last month’s article stated that Photogrammetry is the creation of a 3D model from a combination of many 2D images.

Step 2:  Stitch the Images Together

Now that we’ve gathered a good image collection in the field, we’ll now use Pix4D to stitch the images together.  This process will create the Densified Point Cloud.

Note the 3D component that displays contours and cut/fill areas:

 

Step 3:  Include Surveyed Ground Control Points

Although GPS location information is often included in each image’s EXIF data, it typically isn’t very accurate.  This is the reason surveyed ground control points (GCP’s) are often required to “truth” the 3D model to reality. 

Control point data can be imported from a “points” file or manually entered into the program:

 

The survey crew provided us with a paving and grading plan that included accurate ground control points.  From this information, we’re able to enter the information for six ground control points:

Step 4:  Re-optimize the Project

The project needs to be re-optimized after the inclusion of ground control points.  Now that the model has been “truthed”, we are ready to generate the final outputs. 

Pix4D can output 3D information to be used in a number of CAD-based programs. 

The following is a list of example uses:

  • Contour lines generation
  • Distance and area measurements
  • Volume calculation
  • Comparing volumes between two DSMs
  • 2D digitization
  • 3D digitization
  • 3D visualization
  • Visualization on Google applications
  • Vegetation indices - Index visualization and color editing
  • Vegetation indices - agriculture applications
  • Point cloud classification
  • Stereo viewing
  • 3D printing
  • Contour lines visualization and editing
  • DTM generation
  • Web viewing and sharing
  • Video animation viewing
  • 3D Digitized objects visualization and editing
  • In the field inspection (Index Map)
  • Bundle Adjustment

 

For our example, the client used the model to generate an accurate cut/fill model for earthmoving purposes:

Aerial Drone Photogrammetry | January Mapping Blog | Part 1 https://www.louisianahelicam.com/blog/2017/2/louisiana-aerial-drone-photogrammetry-lidar-topo-mapping-part-1 Louisiana Helicam writes monthly publication articles regarding drone/UAV/UAS usage in the pulp and paper industry.  The January 2017 article is contained below:

We’ve witnessed the introduction of many new photogrammetric applications over the past few years.  Photogrammetry is most often referred to as the science of making measurements from photographs.  I typically describe it as the combining of multiple 2D images to make one 3D model. 

Louisiana Helicam tested a number of standalone and cloud-based photogrammetry applications but eventually chose Pix4Dmapper Pro for the following reasons:

  • A laptop can process much of the data on the trip home
  • Point cloud manipulation (chip pile conveyor removal, site cleanup, etc.)
  • Simple Ground Control Point (GCP) implementation

I typically use Pix4Dmapper Pro for stockpile volume calculation (paper mills) and localized topo maps (hunting leases).  However, other uses include:

  • Up to date site maps (more current than Google Earth)
  • Digital Surface Models (DSM)
  • Digital Terrain Models (DTM)
  • Cut and fill measurements for earthmoving projects
  • NDVI (crop stress) studies for agriculture
  • Structure modeling for both CAD and 3D printing applications
  • Benchmark model data for structural stress/sag over time

The Pix4D process requires multiple images with sufficient overlap regardless of the intended output.  For example, one of the stockpiles that I map on a monthly basis is 19.4 acres.  It takes an average of 240 to 250 orthogonal images at 80% overlap to create the 3D model to be used for volumetric calculation.  Sufficient overlap is mandatory for creating a 3D model with enough information for an accurate volume survey.  That said, Normalized Difference Vegetative Index (NDVI) studies require less overlap if crop height measurements are not needed. 

Stay tuned for next month’s article.  It will contain more information regarding the image collection process and the Pix4D data workflow.

The Evolution of Unmanned Aerial Systems https://www.louisianahelicam.com/blog/2017/2/the-evolution-of-unmanned-aerial-systems Unmanned Aerial Systems (or UAS) have evolved quite a bit since I began flying them in 2004.  Louisiana Helicam started out as an aerial photography company that used radio-controlled helicopters long before multirotor drone technology was adopted as mainstream.  My first helicopter actually used an analog rotary servo with a bicycle brake cable to activate the camera’s shutter button.  A pencil eraser was shoved onto the end of the brake cable so that the shutter button wouldn’t become pitted during the process.  The machine had to land each time a change was needed with respect to the camera’s settings.  The helicopter was powered by a .50-class glow engine and a basic heater hose was used to vent the exhaust away from the camera to avoid smoke-filled shots.  The machine was flown manually with no GPS stabilization.  I would often remove the camera gear and put on an aerobatic show for the customer at the end of the session.  It was just part of the package.

Lithium polymer battery technology (better known as “LiPo”) revolutionized the RC industry in the mid-2000’s.  LiPo batteries offer reasonable flight duration at a marginal weight when compared to older technologies such as Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) or Nickel Cadmium (NiCad).  This served as the starting point for a surge in low cost radio-controlled aircraft. 

New battery technology, combined with the availability of low-cost GPS stabilization, served as a catalyst for more prevalent multirotor technology that is publicly referred to as “drones.”  These machines have made it easier for entry-level pilots to jump right into the aerial photography arena with little to no need for the old art of building and tweaking.  This low barrier to entry has caused a number of issues, many of which are featured in news articles almost daily.  However, it has also been a positive thing.  In my case, modern equipment allows me to focus more on creativity and a busy workload with less bench time.  I do still keep a build project on the bench at all times though! 

Fuel-powered/non-stabilized technology basically had radio-controlled aerial providers limited to simple aerial photography.  Aerial video services were difficult to offer without hours of tweaking and no standards were in place to ensure over 90% usable footage.  Any UAS service provider that could guarantee over 50% usable aerial video footage had to spend much time on equipment building/tweaking and hours on public forums to develop a system that actually worked well.

It’s an exciting time to be in the modern-day UAS industry and overcoming technological hurdles has really opened the door for a variety of uses.  Several examples are:

  • Aerial Photography
  • Aerial Video
  • Inspections
  • Search and Rescue
  • Surveillance
  • Science and Research
  • Surveying and GIS
  • Unmanned Cargo Delivery

Ground-truthing for Volumetric Calculations | Propeller Aero Aeropoints https://www.louisianahelicam.com/blog/2017/2/ground-truthing-for-volumetric-calculations-propeller-aero-aeropoints The use of drones and other unmanned aerial systems for stockpile calculations is quite common these days.  The UAS flies a grid pattern over the stockpile area and georeferenced images are stitched into a three dimensional point cloud prior to volume calculation. 

Some would argue that volumetric calculation via drone only involves relative accuracy and doesn’t need to be “truthed” to real-world/absolute ground control point data.  That said, others have found it necessary to have a GCP survey done prior to any volumetric work that will be done on a recurring basis.  A professional surveyor can typically provide a GCP survey and associated point file for around $1500-$2500.  This point information can then be visually referenced in the digital surface model to “truth” the relative data to the absolute.

Propeller Aero (Australian company) has recently introduced a product called “AeroPoints”, a product that was designed to aid in gathering accurate GCP data while onsite.  The AeroPoint system contains a series of shock resistant pads that are located at various positions around a stockpile.  The solar-powered pads gather GPS location information while the UAS flies the grid (no direct relationship between the AeroPoints and the UAS though).  Each AeroPoint pad then uploads the location information to a Propeller cloud server once an internet connection can be established.  The Propeller service then provides a point file that can be used to include location information for each Aero Point pad that is visually referenced in the surface model. 

Propeller Aero recommends a set of 10 AeroPoint pads for up to 300 acres and 20 AeroPoint pads for surveys up to 850 acres.

Houmas House Aerial and Interior Photos-7/21/16 https://www.louisianahelicam.com/blog/2016/8/houmas-house-aerial-photos-072116 I shoot aerial photos in the St. Gabriel | Gonzales area on a regular basis and finally had a chance to stop by Houmas House on 7/21/16.  

Houmas House Plantation and Gardens has reclaimed its position as Crown Jewel of Louisiana's River Road.

Through the vision and determination of Kevin Kelly, who fulfilled a lifelong dream by acquiring the property in the Spring of 2003, the mansion today reflects the best parts of each period in its rich history alongside the big bend in the Mississippi River.

The first owners of the plantation were the indigenous Houmas Indians, who were given a land grant to occupy the fertile plain between the Mississippi and Lake Maurepas to the north.

The Houmas sold the land to Maurice Conway and Alexander Latil in the mid 1700's
The original French Provincial house that Latil erected on the property in is situated directly behind the Mansion, adjoined by a carriageway to the grand home described during its antebellum heyday as "The Sugar Palace." The original home was later used as living quarters for the staff that served the great house. 

By the time of the Louisiana Purchase in 1803, the plantation was established and producing sugar.

In 1810, Revolutionary War hero Gen. Wade Hampton of Virginia purchased the property and shortly thereafter began construction on the Mansion. However, it was not until 1825 when Hampton's daughter, Caroline, and her husband, Col. John Preston, took over the property that the grand house truly began to take shape.

Construction on the Mansion was completed in 1828. At the same time, Houmas House began to build its sugar production and continued to increase its land holdings, which ultimately grew to 300,000 acres.

Irishman John Burnside bought the plantation in 1857 for $1 million. A businessman and a character, Burnside increased production of sugar until Houmas House was the largest producer in the country, actively working the crop on 98,000 acres. During the Civil War, Burnside saved the Mansion from destruction at the hands of advancing Union forces by declaring immunity as a subject of the British Crown. In addition to building a railway to carry his products to market —"The Sugar Cane Train (1862)" — Burnside, a bachelor, is also said to have offered payment to any parents in the parish who would name their sons "John."

An avid sportsman who wagered heavily in horse races, Burnside once secretly purchased a champion thoroughbred back East with the intent of defeating the steeds of fellow local businessmen in a big race. He quietly slipped the racehorse into the billiard room of the Mansion where it was "stabled" until Burnside's surprise was unveiled at the starting line and hailed in the winner's circle.

Houmas House flourished under Burnside's ownership, but it was under a successor, Col. William Porcher Miles that the plantation grew to its apex in the late 1800's when it was producing a monumental 20 million pounds of sugar each year.

In 1927, the Mississippi came out of its banks in the epic "great flood." While Houmas House was spared, the surrounding areas were inundated. The ensuing economic havoc was but a prelude to the devastation of the Great Depression just two years later.

Houmas House Plantation withered away. The Mansion closed and fell into disrepair, a condition in which it remained until 1940 when Dr. George B. Crozat purchased it.

Crozat bought Houmas House to be a summer home away from his native New Orleans. He renovated the property with the intent to give it a more "Federal" look than the stately Greek Revival style in which it was conceived. The structure was painted white inside and out. Crown moldings and ceiling medallions were removed and both interior and exterior forms and finishes were simplified.

Eventually, the Crozat heirs opened the property to tourists. In 1963, the defining Bette Davis film "Hush, Hush Sweet Charlotte" was shot in the property. The room in which Ms. Davis stayed while filming is preserved as part of today's Houmas House tour.

In addition to the Mansion and Gardens, history is also reflected in the many antique furnishings and works of art that grace the Houmas House tour. Distinguished by its two Garconierre, the Mansion exudes the warmth of a home (it's the owner's active residence), while proudly portraying its role as a landmark in American history.

Enjoy!

Daily guided mansion tours are just the beginning of what you will find here.  Nottoway also offers deluxe rooms for overnight guests, fabulous dining, luxury amenities, and multiple ballrooms and meeting facilities which have been the settings for countless special events and spectacular weddings.  But, the most important thing you'll find here is unforgettably gracious southern hospitality and service.

John James Audubon Bridge | Mississippi River-7/7/16 https://www.louisianahelicam.com/blog/2016/8/john-james-audubon-bridge-mississippi-river-7/7/16 I recently had the opportunity to document the John James Audubon Bridge located between New Roads, LA and St. Francisville, LA.  The John James Audubon Bridge, completed and opened in 2011, is a Mississippi River crossing between Pointe Coupee and West Feliciana parishes in south central Louisiana. The bridge has the second longest cable-stayed span in the Western Hemisphere (after Mexico's Baluarte bridge)[2][3] (although its total length is four times that of the Mexican bridge) and replaces the ferry between the communities of New Roads and St. Francisville. The bridge also serves as the only bridge structure on the Mississippi River between Natchez, Mississippi and Baton Rouge, Louisiana (approximately 90 river miles). The bridge conveys Louisiana Highway 10, which is in a concurrence there with the Zachary Taylor Parkway.

Tarpan Construction-Black Bayou Bridge Reconstruction Project https://www.louisianahelicam.com/blog/2016/7/tarpan-construction-black-bayou-bridge-reconstruction-project
The project is located in southern Calcasieu Parish at the intersection of Louisiana Hwy 384 and Black Bayou, adjacent to the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway (GIWW). This project consists of performing various maintenance activities to the existing structure, as well as installing two steel sheet pile walls in the immediate vicinity of the existing concrete culvert structure in an effort to prevent saline water from traveling east of Louisiana Highway 384. In recent years, the Black Bayou Culvert Structure has been significantly undermined, resulting in a loss of structural support from the soil. As a result, the project will also include foundation strengthening, or underpinning, in an effort to increase the foundation support capacity. This construction effort will require the project site to be dewatered for an extended duration to allow for the underpinning and maintenance activities to be completed.
 
Tarpan Construction is the Prime Contractor on this project. Work began 6/1/2015. An excellent team of contractors was assembled to tackle the varying scopes of work on this project. Tarpan Construction is handling the management of the project to include Project Manager, Quality Control and Site Safety and Health Officer. Tarpan has crewed up and has 6-8 employees on the project self- performing tasks such as earthen coffer dams, dewatering, cleaning the culvert structures, placing rip rap, trucking, executing the traffic control and pollution control plan.

Squire Creek Golf Course Aerial Photos https://www.louisianahelicam.com/blog/2015/12/squire-creek-golf-course-aerial-photos I recently had the chance to shoot several aerial photos for the Squire Creek golf course located in Choudrant, Louisiana.  

Squire Creek is a private, members-only facility, which features an 18-hole championship golf course designed by Tom Fazio. The course was ranked as one of the top 10 best new courses in America by Golf Digest in 2004.  Squire Creek's 18 championship holes are hand cut into the Northern Louisiana landscape.  They offer a fair but challenging test to players of all calibers.  The 7,105 yard, par 72 layout is characterized by a gentle rolling plain and plays feature to neighboring beautiful Southern style homes.  Natural views and picturesque scenery surround our property to provide a perfect escape.

The Monroe Athletic Club was established in January of 1990 by the Smith family.  The location was a renovation of the former Chauvin Racquet Club which closed its doors years ago.  Originally designated as the Monroe Racquet Club, the facility was developed to house a fun, family-oriented Tennis Center for the surrounding community.  In 1995, the Smith family decided to transform the club into a full-scale, Multipurpose Health Club and renamed it the Monroe Athletic Club.  Since it opened the club has grown in every facet from facilities and amenities to membership base.  To this day the Monroe Athletic Club prides itself in being one of the most complete family Fitness Centers in the South!

The expanded Cajun-Sibon system connects EnLink Midstream’s Eunice fractionator in South Louisiana to Mt. Belvieu supply pipelines in East Texas, improving the reliability and diversity of NGL supply to the region’s petrochemical and refining markets. Phase II of the Cajun-Sibon project, which is supported by long term, fee-based ethane and propane sales agreements with a major petrochemical company in the region, includes: the expansion of the Partnership’s Cajun-Sibon pipeline capacity by an additional 50,000 barrels per day (bpd) of raw-make NGL to 120,000 bpd; the installation of a 100,000 bpd fractionator adjacent to the Partnership’s Plaquemine natural gas processing plant; the modification of the Riverside fractionator facility; and the construction and conversion of approximately 90 miles of NGL pipelines that originate at the Partnership’s Eunice fractionator and connect to the new Plaquemine fractionator.

Traditional two and four-family apartment homes line streets restored to the original grid patterns laid out some two centuries ago. But the old is new and much improved. The latest construction materials, energy-saving insulation and modern appliances all make River Garden living more comfortable, more convenient and more affordable. River Garden is old New Orleans living at its best and its newest.

The night aerials were taken during a 24/7 work period and it was common for the stadium to be lit well into the evening hours.  Some evening shots involved the use of the stadium's regular flood lights while others involved scoreboard lighting only.  This is a beautiful stadium when captured from the air during evening hours.  Enjoy!
