This year’s Earth Day has focused on the bee as a small but indispensable insect. The relevance of this focus is obvious in the documented enormous reduction in insect numbers; as witnessed by motorists in the diminished number of dead insects to be found on windshields. In some regions there has been a reduction in insect numbers of up to 80 per cent.
Our photo of the month for April shows the terminal of Lyon airport, which is named after the author Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, and situated in southern France. In the vertical perspective the building resembles a winged insect or a bird. At the bottom of the photos is the airport train station for the TGV high-speed rail service between Paris and Marseille.
Photos of these types are often requested by airport authorities to draw up or update planning criteria, to follow up changes or to make precise photogrammetric surveys of airport aprons, taxiways and runways. Deliverable products include orthomosaics as well as compiled map data for GIS (like our ExperMaps), BIM or CAD software systems.
