Greater lean than the the tower of Pisa

As part of the Horus Academy for mobile mapping training, an exercise has been created to measure the tillt of the Walfridus tower in Bedum. The 12th century tower of Walfridus rises nearly 120 feetover the northern Dutch town of Bedum, but leans 8ft 6 inches to one side.


The exercise focuses on datacapturing, postprocessing the GPS and using the Horus tools to measure the tillt of the tower.
