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…

Virtual Surveyor Tools

Virtual Surveyor Tools

What to do with those millions of triangles defining the geometry of an Urban Environment? Enter the Virtual Surveyor Tools. An all too often underestimated step in the workflow of a UAV mapping operation is the extraction of features of interest in vector format. Structure from Motion and Lidar give us unprecedented density in point clouds to better represent the shapes we are interested in. While that density helps to define edges and planes accurately, it comes with the big data burdens – heavy processing, lots of memory and patience…

V-Map system at work!

V-Map system at work!

Capital Press has written an interesting article entitled Idaho Drone Project Studies Potato Stress. We are very happy to see how our V-Map system and the drones we configured for Donna and her colleagues at Idaho State University are finding their way to harmless and productive engagements!   Back in March we equipped Donna with two Survey Copter Systems – a quad and a hex – including spare frames and V-Map systems. With Oliver’s talent for configuration and packaging we could see Donna off with all her gear accompanying her…
