Klau Geomatics Launches PPK Software for Phantom4 RTK UAV

Klau Geomatics, specialised in PPK hardware and post-processing software, recently announced its new PPK software for the DJI Phantom4 RTK drone. The software enables professional users to achieve the most accurate and reliable results with their P4RTK drone without running it in RTK mode. RTK requires continuous communication between the drone and base station, limiting the operational range and data quality. PPK does not require any real-time connection to the base. Not only does this method save users the time and trouble of setting up a base station, but the data collected is complete, no losses due to communications links,... (read more)

Accurate Georeferencing for UAV Surveying without Base Station

Klau Geomatics, specialised in post processed kinematic (PPK) direct georeferencing technology, has announced its new No-Base-Station high-accuracy georeferencing solution for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). This innovative new solution is the result of close collaboration between Klau Geomatics and Hexagon’s Geosystems Division, enabling users to conduct UAV surveying projects without running a local GPS receiver, producing high-accuracy 3D survey data. In addition to accuracy, which is the most important feature of our georeferencing solution, is the simplified and efficient workflow. Users don’t need any survey equipment to place Ground Control Points (GCPs) or even a local base station for their PPK. They can... (read more)

Sony Camera Payload for DJI Drones from Klau Geomatics

With the end of the DJI X4s camera, drone operators have been looking for a quality mapping camera solution for the Inspire 2 and M200/M210/M210V2 drones. Klau Geomatics has released a Sony camera/PPK payload to offer better results from these drones. This enables more effective and accurate mapping and inspection using superior-quality, plug-and-play camera payloads with precise 3D positioning accuracy. Sony has a number of quality cameras, proven to generate high-quality mapping from drones. Models such as the RX1r2, a6300 and a5100 all have large sensor, leaf shutters and no moving internals to affect camera calibration. An RX1r2 will cover... (read more)

UAV Maps New Zealand Beach to Create Detailed 3D Model

A landslide on Clifton Beach, New Zealand, earlier this year injured two Korean tourists when they were washed out to sea. Following this event, the beach was closed while Hastings District Council undertook a risk assessment. The Surveying Company was contracted to provide data collected by an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV or 'drone') to assist the council in making public safety decisions regarding access to the Cape. To map the cliff faces they used a combination of RTK GPS and a PPK GPS unit mounted to their UAV. Initially the surveyors concentrated on assessing the main rockfall where the tourists...
