Mapping Urban Areas with UAVs

Mapping Urban Areas with UAVs

In case you missed our presentation on Mapping Urban Areas with UAVs at the annual meeting of the Florida Region ASPRS (American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing) last Friday, August 15th 2014, here is your opportunity to see it! The presentation covers some of our work in Albania where we used a SteadiDrone QU4D equipped with our V-map Dual Frequency GPS receiver for cadastral mapping of a highly populated urban environment where rapid development is occuring, often without proper documentation of property boundaries and ownership. The imagery was processed…

Dispatch from Tirana, Albania

Dispatch from Tirana, Albania

We at Micro Aerial Projects are very happy to continue our work with the World Bank in Albania where we are mapping and modelling with small UAVs. Today we completed our 49th flight over the quickly developing peri-urban landscapes on the fringes of Tirana. It all went without a hitch.  We are really excited about the models we are building from the high resolution images. Hopefully our work will one day result in general acceptance of small UAVs/drones as efficient and appropriate survey tools. There is an incredibly amount of…
