UAVs Revolutionise Land Administration

In 2014, a joint publication by the World Bank and FIG noted that 75 percent of the world’s population do not have access to formal systems to register and safeguard their land rights. Therefore, there is an urgent need to build affordable and sustainable systems to identify the way land is occupied and used. The emergence of smaller and more affordable UAS technology, combined with recent advances in highly automated mapping techniques, offers a new tool and methodology for producing faster and cheaper spatial data. In turn, this can benefit land administration agencies and help to secure property rights for... (read more)

New Unmanned Aerial Photogrammetric Mapping Solution

Drone manufacturer ScientificAerospace together with mapping company DroneMetrex from Adelaide, Australia, has developed a photogrammetric mapping solution that offers new possibilities for the geospatial industry. Building on the advantages of ScientificAerospace’s experience over eight years on six continents, its technically advanced multi-rotor unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) creates synergy with DroneMetrex’s mapping accuracy technology to produce an innovative and complete photogrammetric mapping system: the TopoDrone-4Scight. The TopoDrone-4Scight (TD-4Scight) easily collects photogrammetric mapping data of great accuracy (20mm horizontal and better than 25mm vertical) for rapid integration into a wide range of industries including surveying, urban mapping, civil engineering, mining, agriculture, bridge and dam wall mapping, post...

Hybrid UAS/UAV: Fixed Wing and Chopper in One Aircraft

A hybrid UAS/UAV combines the best of two worlds: the benefits of a fixed wing and chopper in one aircraft. Unmanned airborne systems (UASs) – aircraft which fly without human pilots on board – have soared in popularity as surveying devices. Today they are applied in a wide variety of 2D and 3D mapping, inspection and monitoring tasks. So far there have been two broad categories: fixed wings and multicopters. However, recent advances have led to a third category: the hybrid UAS/UAV, which combines the best of both worlds. Sensors and battery After flight, the recorded GNSS and IMU data is usually used to georeference the sensor data. The sensors on board include RGB cameras, near-infrared (NIR) cameras, thermal infrared (TIR)... (read more)

UAS híbrido: Beneficios de una aeronave de ala fija y un helicóptero

Sistemas aéreos no tripulados (UASs) - aeronaves que vuelan sin pilotos humanos a bordo - se han disparado en popularidad como dispositivos para levantamientos aéreos. Hoy en día son aplicados en una amplia variedad de mapeo 2D y 3D, tareas de inspección y de supervisión. Hasta el momento existían dos grandes categorías: de alas fija y multicópteros. Sin embargo, los recientes avances han dado lugar a una tercera categoría: UAS híbrido, que combina lo mejor de ambos mundos. Después del vuelo, el registro de datos GNSS e IMU es generalmente usado para georreferenciar los datos del sensor. Los sensores a... (read more)

Tandem for 3D Corridor Mapping

Simultaneous Geo-data Capture from the Ground and from the Air
3D mapping of roads, pipelines and other linear structures – often called corridors – is an important geomatics activity. Geodata acquisition technologies, which are increasingly used for corridor mapping and also for 3D mapping of urban areas, are mobile mapping systems and unmanned airborne systems. Can these two technologies be combined for simultaneously capturing corridors from the ground and from the air to improve efficiency, completeness and accuracy? This was the leading question in the mapKITE project. In this article, the authors explain the concepts underlying the project and prove their feasibility through pilot studies.  MapKITE – developed within the... (read more)
