3D mapping the Christ the Redeemer statue
The PUC University of Rio de Janeiro, software producer Pix4D and Canadian drone company Aeryon have all taken part in a project to create a digital replica of the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio.

The team conducted 19 drone flights over the statue in order to capture thousands of images that they could then turn into data points.
