The Tellus airborne geophysical survey is a national survey of Ireland and therefore low-level flying occurs over numerous dwellings, farms and livestock. A Tellus Communications Viewer has been developed to manage survey operations allowing flight plans to be integrated with digitized polygons of relevant stakeholders who can then be contacted. The tool was created using open source software - Matererialize – a front-end responsive framework created by Google. While ‘leaflet’ software is used to allow interactions with maps. The tool also acts as a database management system logging all interactions with stakeholders. The system has been developed over a number of years and was fully operational for airborne surveys conducted in 2016.
