Drone mapping has HUGE potential for a number of sectors including construction, agriculture, mining, infrastructure inspection and real estate. Having a clear, accurate photograph or 3D model of your project area, complete with measurements, is advantageous in terms of decision-making.
Mapping with drones is done using a technique called Photogrammetry. Photogrammetry is the science of making measurements from Photographs. The output of this is normally a map, measurement, or 3D model of a real-world object or scene. Many of the maps we use today are created using photogrammetry and images taken from aircraft.
Mapping with drones is very similar to this, the main difference being the low altitude a UAV can fly, therefore capturing higher quality images.
