National Mapping and Resource Information Authority (NAMRIA) of the Republic of the Philippines certifies and registers V-Map receivers as suitable for “first order geodetic control positioning”

The National Mapping and Resource Information Authority (NAMRIA) of the Republic of the Philippines has certified and registered V-Map receivers as suitable for “first order geodetic control positioning”. It is not with surprise, but with considerable pride that we share with you the news that the National Mapping and Resource Information Authority (NAMRIA) of the Republic of the Philippines has certified and registered our V-Map receivers as suitable for “first order geodetic control positioning”.   (Certificate of Registration and Calibration issued for V-Map receivers by the National Mapping and Resource…

V-MAP AERIAL MAPPING SYSTEM ON THE TUFFWING UAV MAPPER

V-MAP AERIAL MAPPING SYSTEM ON THE TUFFWING UAV MAPPER

  V-Map Aerial Mapping System on the TuffWing UAV Mapper In our continuing effort to improve on efficiency in Structure from Motion (SfM) mapping with small drones, we joined with Brian Christal of TuffWing to test the combination of the robust, no-nonsense UAV-Mapper with our dual frequency PPK GNSS V-Map System for a mapping technique without (or with reduced) need for ground control points. Because ground control point surveys are in most cases the most time consuming and costly aspect of SfM mapping, we are convinced that this solution will…

Talking about small drones at the World Bank Forum on Agriculture, 2016

Talking about small drones at the World Bank Forum on Agriculture, 2016

On February 18 at the 2016 World Bank Forum on Agriculture in Washington, D.C.  I had the pleasure of sharing the podium with some important people in international development. I talked about small drones and their potential in helping farmers to monitor and manage their crops and animals. And I learned a lot from my fellow presenters. So it was another good day in drone life. ~Walter Volkmann

The Mapping Revolution

The Mapping Revolution

Our sister company, Drone2GIS, just returned from the 60th Annual General Meeting of the Florida Surveying and Mapping Society (FSMS) in Naples Florida where we showcased the revolutionary mapping capabilities of  small unmanned aerial systems (drones) and Structure from Motion (SfM) processing software. Have a look at our video which highlights this mapping revolution: Take a ride through some of our exciting projects where Drone2GIS Inc. has, through the use of small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, created highly accurate and high resolution ortho-photos and Digital Surface Models (DSM) for various clients.…

PERSONAL MAPPING DRONES IN LAND ADMINISTRATION, AGRICULTURE AND CONSERVATION

PERSONAL MAPPING DRONES IN LAND ADMINISTRATION, AGRICULTURE AND CONSERVATION

  I just returned from a conference in Washington D.C. at which New America launched a well written primer for geospatial practitioners, land administrators and stake holders:  Drones and Aerial Observation: New Technologies for Property Rights, Human Rights, and Global Development:     We are pleased to see that our work has enabled us to contribute to this well written book. Not only is it good news about drones, it is also a long overdue recognition about the usefulness of drones in planning and managing land use. Hopefully the big…

The V-Map System in Action

The V-Map System in Action

It takes more than drones to make high quality maps. Using our dual frequency ultra-fast (20Hz) ultra-light (130g) V-Map system we can very quickly determine precise coordinates for Ground Control Points as well as Camera Exposure Positions. The V-Map system provides the back-bone to high quality drone mapping.     The V-Map System used as a rover for rapid and precise survey of ground control points.   Computing Ground Control Point coordinates while the drone is acquiring aerial imagery. Contact Micro Aerial Projects to help you get your projects off…

Sharing the V-Map Experience with Friends from Japan

Sharing the V-Map Experience with Friends from Japan

Sharing the V-Map Experience Sharing the V-Map experience with Mr. Masuda Tishinobu, President of Kaiteki-Kukan FC CO., Ltd  The V-Map system is generating interest around the world.  On Wednesday we enjoyed a visit from Japanese friends.  In Japan, which is one of the most densely populated countries in the world there are hardly any regulatory restrictions on the use of drones for all sorts of purposes. Not surprising then that hundreds of surveyors in Japan are using drones for mapping as a matter of routine. Were it not for the…
