What’s more, UAVs can improve data collection accuracy and efficiency, optimize a workflow while also enabling the production of cost-effective turnkey DSM’s whenever they’re needed. Simply put, UAVs can make it far easier to gather the info needed to create maps by reducing costs and simplifying the image-capturing process. However, right now the application of drones in the field is very much a niche endeavor, and that is mostly due to FAA restrictions. Most of the people doing UAV-based mapping are doing things that would have been on the fringe of what was already being done, because that’s the only work that can be done by professionals, even if they’ve received their 333 Exemption.
In this PDH or CE course the attendee will learn that the combination of technology tools that drones enable is clearly the biggest selling point. UAVs can be utilized along with photogrammetry, point cloud and conversion of point cloud data, to re¬define service offerings. Before that can fully happen though, FAA regulations need to be sorted out.
