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)

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)

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)

The Future of Lidar is Critical to the Future of Our World

What will be the future of Lidar? To quote Abraham Lincoln: “The most reliable way to predict the future is to create it”. So what is currently being created in the geospatial market? This article focuses on Lidar in relation to a number of relevant themes: Lidar technology, open data and artificial intelligence/machine learning (AI/ML). Lidar technology is developing rapidly, as illustrated by the number of start-up companies to serve the autonomous market which feature traditional mechanical scanning devices, tiny-chip solid-state Lidar units and the emerging FMCW Lidar. The fact that Apple has announced an iPad with Lidar indicates this technology’s... (read more)
