Terra Drone’s KazUAV supports World Bank’s school infrastructure risk assessment initiative


KazUAV has been supporting the World Bank in its initiative to build sustainable school infrastructure in the Republic of Kyrgyzstan.

As part of the General-Purpose Simulation Program (GPSS) under the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR) grant-funding mechanism of the World Bank, KazUAV has surveyed and mapped Kyrgyz schools for a pilot project.

A highly-detailed database of the educational infrastructure facilities which consisted of geographic coordinates, aerial imagery, orthophotomaps, and 3D models of the school buildings, was created by KazUAV to help the World Bank make better decisions for improving the safety and functional conditions of schools in Kyrgyzstan.

In the pilot, 12 schools in the Kyrgyz capital of Bishkek have been mapped. All the schools selected had varied architectural configurations and were located at different distances from the city center.

Dmitriy Ivanov, director at KazUAV, said: “Collection of accurate and comparable data with drones for construction of photomaps, 3D modeling, and real-time monitoring, plays an important role in monitoring and analyzing the current state of sites and territories, as well as the operational situation in any given area.”

He added: “Given the multifaceted capabilities of modern UAVs, as well as the successful experience of their operations for several years by the KazUAV team in different climatic zones and under different weather conditions, I’m positive that their use can be highly-effective for the World Bank for solving a wide range of tasks.”
