Creating 3D and 2D Maps Using Drone-based Aerial Photogrammetry

A popular commercial drone use-case is aerial photogrammetry. Aerial photogrammetry creates 2D or 3D models from sets of aerial photographs. Drones are the perfect for collecting the required aerial photographs because of their simplicity and low operational costs. This has made traditional photogrammetric platforms (manned planes) that are still carrying heavy, sophisticated, expensive, and accurate sensors cumbersome and [...]

Land Surveyor Roundtable Interview

Like many, I think the opportunity for drones in agriculture is huge; even in the face of strict regulations, drone-based precision agriculture is already making an impact. The Waypoint blog from SenseFly recently interviewed four experienced land surveyors that are already using drones. The interview included some interesting material and I encourage you to follow [...]
