When it was built, Alnwickhill Water Treatment Works was new & state-of-the-art, supplying clean water to the south of Edinburgh.

Today, a primarily gravity fed system, with mostly open ponds and filters, is seen as old, and not up to standards.

Add to this that the city has grown round the site, so there was a strong financial case to build new plant elsewhere and sell this site for development of over 250 dwellings.

Around 4 weeks into the transformation, the original ponds and tanks can still be seen, around 7 months to complete the "ground works", then the houses can be built.
4 GoPro HERO2 cameras, with a wooden camera cradle/rig to hold the cameras in exactly the correct position is triggered by 4 gentWIRE camera syncronisers. Suspended below a Dan Leigh Cruiser kite with 8ft/2.5m span.

This technique produces two hemispheres, and a different workflow in PTGui from the classic ground pano technique. This results in extra effort BUT impossible angles!

See the rig, how Kite Aerial Photography is achieved, and the workflow.
