Abstract
Ultra Mobile and Surveillance Mapping Using UAV
Demand for current data today is inherently direct consequences of upgraded endusers geospatial experience and users are returning for more and better mapping products. Existed since early 1900s, Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) A.K.A. drone is increasingly becoming the alternative airborne platform for acquiring aerial images of small to medium size AOIs not only due to its versatility to be quickly deployed compared with more conventional platform but also cost effectiveness and low maintenance. With improved small format, high resolution imaging sensors flying at low altitude and below cloud level, mapping data will be more readily available, timely and affordable for diverse mapping applications at much lower costs. This paper describes the uses, characteristics, operational and technical issues in the use of UAVs for mapping purposes.
