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 automated exercise that quickly produced BIG data. To extract the essential data, Virtual Survey Tools was used to bring conventional field work to the safe and comfortable office environment.
