Precision geotagging images using Emlid Reach, Canon S100, CHDK, KAP script and RTKlib – Proof of concept



We have been using a Canon S100 running CHDK and KAP script for mapping and modelling using Pix4d for a while, and thought it might be useful to share the results of some testing of the possibility of…

100KM
The Perfect UAV Mapping Camera

It’s really strange that there’s been so much development in all other aspects of UAV Mapping, except one – the camera!

Currently most of us are using the Canon S100-120 or Sony Nex7 etc, running custom firmware or tricky wiring and triggers to fire the shutter in flight.

So…

Why vertical takeoff when you have the Aeromapper Talon?

Have you ever wonder how to easily launch and recover a drone from a confined space, map a relatively large area, obtain high res RGB and NIR imagery from the same flight, and process the imagery automatically and quickly, at half the cost of other solutions out there?

 Here is a quickly shot video of the Aeromapper Talon and its great capabilities for…

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s……. an autonomous fixed-wing mapping drone

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…

UgCS Image Geotagging and Map Overlays

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…

USING DRONES FOR SAFER SURVEY AND MAPPING WORK ON TRANSPORTATION CORRIDORS

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…

PlotBox - a startup, that uses drones to map cemeteries

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 But these outdated systems can lead to errors and expensive lawsuits when graves are dug in the wrong place and someone’s Rest In Peace is disturbed.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…

Aerial Photogrammetry vs. Terrestrial Photogrammetry

Photogrammetry is a technology that combines photography and geometry. The principle is very simple, yet it has a huge impact on current architectural works. What it does is something like this:

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.

  • Aerial…
