This blog covers the development of an autonomous fixed-wing mapping drone, and the mapping of a vineyard in California.
The vineyard was located in a valley with the main property at the top of a hill, with the vines covering the hilly area. There was approx. 80 acres of vineyard and almond…Continue
UgCS has two very important features when it comes to mapping. The first is that UgCS supports geotagging. This means that UgCS is able to sync the telemetry data from a flight to pictures taken during the fligh
This information can then be used in software such as Pix4D to stitch the…
I want to share my experience with 3d modelling an archaeological structure called "Midas Monument" located at Yazılıkaya, Turkey. It was relatively an easy task, if you have right hardware and software. And I want to thank to dronmarket.com for…
Last week, in Naples, Fl., at the AGM of the Florida Surveying and Mapping Society (FSMS) our sister company drone2GIS Inc. showcased a cross section of it's leading edge drone derived geo-spatial products . Have a look at the video here: …Continue
The Aeromapper family of UAVs consist of three different drones aimed for mapping and survey applications with…Continue
We recently tested our Structure from Motion (SfM) and Virtual Surveying approach in a road survey scenario. The only significant manual work in the field was to survey ground control and check points. Image acquisition (with a Pixhawk equipped quad copter and a 24Mp camera) as well as SfM processsing was a highly…Continue

Yesterday, I finally felt happy enough with my first mapping experiments to share my ideas, experiences and results with you. I was a little bit apprehensive at first; the prospect of adding gps location information to a non-gps camera seemed too daunting a task for…Continue

Cemeteries use paper and old school spreadsheets to manage their land and know where to dig. But these outdated systems can lead to errors and expensive lawsuits when graves are dug in the wrong place and someone’s Rest In Peace is disturbed. PlotBox offers a SAAS for cemeteries and crematoria that helps them…
An example of the new geo-spatial products and virtual surveying and planning tools which we can bring to the farmer's kitchen table today - safely, harmlessly and economically, over and over again. All thanks to small UAVs - the new personal mapping systems. Thanks to the tremendous contributions from the DIY Drone community, small enterprises can now offer new cost saving…Continue
We are an Aussie based start up with a 20 year history in traditional aerial survey with both helicopter and fixed wing platforms. We are also a CASA licensed UAV operation with our own custom made…Continue
Photography gives 2D representations. The system generates 3D measurements of the surface and object from a photograph. Aerial and terrestrial are two major types of photogrammetry.

The Aeromapper 300 is the latest UAV offer from Aeromao Inc. Canada.
The Aeromapper 300 is one of the most complete UAV for general mappping applications, at the most competitve price on the market. Powerful yet very easy & friendly to use, with 1.5 hour endurance, currently more than two dozen different sensors or combination of sensors supported…Continue
It's been already a while ago since we started selling one of our newest drones based on the Talon UAV airframe: the Aeromapper Talon.
In this occasion we wanted to use a large foam aircraft, something that was compact and yet large to offer 60 minutes endurance carrying a Sony Nex 5 with wide angle lens (as standard sensor, but more sensors are available). We…Continue
GIS: The Biggest Little Drone Market in the World
Last week I had the pleasure of participating in a two-day symposium on unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) hosted by the Northern California American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS). …Continue
I took the new 3DR IRIS+ out for some mapping testing using the stock IRIS+, Gopro Hero 3 Black and DroidPlanner 2.0 running on a Nexus 7 1st Gen tablet. We also tried out the follow-me feature which seemed to work well although you should use with a gimbal for best results. Checkout the video below-
We are happy to present the EAGLE Y6 mapping drone, a turnkey solution for mapping based on the Y6 drone from 3DR with our own touch, aimed to professional users.
The Eagle Y6 multirotor mapping system is designed to create professional ultra-high resolution DEMs and orthomosaics with minimal effort and cero experience, and with high predictability.
