Drone Mapping

Drone is an unmanned aircraft that is guided remotely or autonomously without human control or beyond line of sight. Drone / UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) Mapping is nothing but processing a raw imagery / Unmanned Aerial Surveyed (UAS) imagery acquired by the drone sensors and convert it into other useful products.

Why drone mapping?

Drones are perfect, inexpensive, fast, accurate, reliable, repeatable with less risk, more frequency and detailed than manned flight or satellite imagery which makes the drone an ideal flight platform for near-ground mapping. The synergy of today’s cameras and drones enables mapping at levels of detail never before imagined. It is very cost effective and accurate down to 10 to 15 cm is very possible and can even go further with the slight increased cost.

Drone applications:

Imagination is our limitation in drone mapping as we can use for number of applications. We are listing out a very few applications of drones that provides a level of insight that’s invaluable to industries like

  • ● Agriculture,
  • ● Building 3D models,
  • ● Construction,
  • ● Land and resource management,
  • ● Mining,
  • ● Monitoring,
  • ● Surveying and mapping,
  • ● Utilities and Telecom,
  • ● Corridor Mapping,
  • ● etc.

Drone Products / deliverables:

Drone Mapping products can be obtained using a series of processing steps starting from the raw imagery.

  • ● Autonomously create high-resolution maps for monitoring sites,
  • ● Planimetric features (road edges, heights, signs, building footprints, etc),
  • ● 3D Building Models,
  • ● Orthophotos (geospatially corrected aerial images),
  • ● Point Clouds,
  • ● Digital Surface Models,
  • ● Digital Elevation Models,
  • ● Textured Digital Surface Models,
  • ● Orthorectified Imagery,
  • ● Classified Point Clouds,
  • ● Volumetric Surveys,
  • ● Contours, but not limited to.
