DUAL FREQUENCY GNSS ON MULTICOPTERS – SETTING THE RECORD STRAIGHT

DUAL FREQUENCY GNSS ON MULTICOPTERS – SETTING THE RECORD STRAIGHT

THE HISTORY OF DUAL FREQUENCY GNSS ON MULTICOPTERS – SETTING THE RECORD STRAIGHT V-Map mounted on a modified Steadidrone The light weight dual frequency on board GNSS system for sUAVs was first conceptualized in September 2011 when we were once again frustrated by proprietary VTOL UAS manufacturers whom we could not convince of the advantages of on board dual frequency GNSS in sUAS mapping applications. Hence we decided to take the development of this cost saving feature into our own hands and built a universal, affordable, hot-exchangeable, dual frequency GNSS V-Map…

V-map White Paper

V-map White Paper

MAPPING WITHOUT GROUND CONTROL: NOW YOU CAN! Micro Aerial Projects L.L.C. is proud to announce that we have officially published our White Paper (Mapping without Ground Control) and launched our V-map System website at www.v-map.net during this years UAS Reno conference. With the V-map system we are able to produce accurate maps from UAV imagery without the need for ground control! Designed by surveyors for surveyors, the V-map System is the world’s first platform independent, lightweight, 20Hz Dual Frequency L1/L2 GPS receiver with event marking for unmanned aerial systems (UAS). With the…

Educating Future Surveyors

Educating Future Surveyors

Micro Aerial Projects L.L.C. and drone2GIS Inc., (a licensed mapping company based in Gainesville Florida) have partnered over the past few months to assist the University of Florida’s Geomatics department with their UAS Certificate program. This collaboration brings both real world UAS mapping operation experience and decades of Surveying and Mapping experience to help educate future surveyors and mappers on the use of small drones for mapping. To see some of what we have done, please click on the following link: http://drone2gis.com/promoting-small-drone-mapping/ If you have not done so yet, please visit www.drone2GIS.com and subscribe…

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…
