Aerial Mapping by Consumer Camcorders

Aerial Videography: Low-cost, Simple, Fast and Appropriate
Developing countries still have a need for mapping systems that are low-cost, simple to operate by local operators, fast in production and yet meet the needs of the application. A satellite mapping system can be a good choice, but cloud coverage and revisit time often limit its application, especially in tropical areas. The author shows that Aerial Videography (AV) mapping based on a consumer camcorder meets mapping requirements. Camcorders are low-cost, simple to operate and widely available. Compared to traditional metric aerial cameras, camcorders are far less accurate and have smaller fields of view. One of the strengths of AV... (read more)
