Drones, Dual Frequency GNSS, SfM and Property Surveys

Drones, Dual Frequency GNSS, SfM and Property Surveys

In April of 2017, Walter Volkmann (President – Micro Aerial Projects L.L.C.) gave a presentation at Harvard University for the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative and Center for Geographic Analysis on the use of Dual Frequency GNSS and the Structure from Motion (SfM) technique. As a seasoned land-surveyor, Walter has worked around the globe on various mapping projects for private companies and well as government agencies. With a passion for supporting affordable property registration, Walter shares some of the A-Z of the use of drones and structure from motion software for property surveys. Drones and…

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”

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…

Drone Mapping Capacity Development – The Philippines

Drone Mapping Capacity Development – The Philippines

Walter Volkmann (CEO / Micro Aerial Projects L.L.C.) is currently in the Philippines providing Drone Mapping Capacity Development! Beneficiaries of this training include the Foundation for Economic Freedom (FEF), the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) and various other organizations and individuals. Using drones for mapping increases the efficiency and speed at which actionable data can be delivered to decision makers. UAS Unmanned Systems Consulting and Skyflix who have provided their drones for this activity have successfully integrated V-map AIR on their UAS for high precision aerial mapping, further demonstrating the platform independent…

Small Drone Cadastral Surveys

Small Drone Cadastral Surveys

Small Drone Cadastral Surveys for Establishment of Property Rights (See mini-documentary below): In April 2016 Micro Aerial Projects L.L.C. participated in the “Technology for Property Rights”  project managed by Foundation for Economic Freedom and The Asia Foundation with support from the Omidyar Network. This project aims to introduce sustainable technology which can accelerate the generation of land titles. Currently an estimated number of eleven million citizens of the Philippines are waiting to have ownership of their land formalized. Our role in this project included demonstrating the technical feasibility of small drone technology and the Structure…
