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…

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…
