Drones are exciting innovative equipment well suited for Surveying, Mining, Agriculture, Emergency Response and many more applications. This new emerging technology introduces a great potential for using in high resolution mapping complementary to traditional surveying technologies and to traditional photogrammetry. Geoinformatics Center is engaged in research for delivering efficient high quality aerial map products at low cost using Drones. We have successfully applied inexpensive drones in creating very high resolution maps and terrain models with a remarkable accuracy.
Beyond the limits
Alternative to expensive survey grade drones, we have explored an inexpensive way to create high quality aerial maps using consumer grade drones. With a GPS + digital camera equipped drone and advancement of Photogrammetric and Computer Vision technologies, it makes possible to reach an accuracy level that suits many application in mapping as Urban Mapping, Forest Foliage, Quick Assessment of Disasters etc.
Currently, Geoinformatics Center has a DJI Phantom 3 Professional drone.
