Hello members of GIS AREA ! Drones, also named UAV's or UAS's, are becoming increasingly popular for different applications. Me, I am interested in the field on drones applications for remote sensing, more exactly for aerial mapping, to produce orthophotos, Digital Terrain Models (DEM) and other products which are very useful for research or private businesses. I would like to know more about how to build a personal drone from 0, how to selected the best platform for the application of aerial mapping, how to fly the drone and how to process the datasets obtained from drones. I know that, on this forum, there are some people who are using drones and it would be great to share some knowledge, some practical information to others interested in UAV drones. Let's see what can we do. Is someone interested to participate to this ? My best regards, Arhanghelul
I have a question for those who use UAV drones: what type of drone is better for geomorphological studies ? Let's say that I would like to map a landslide or multiple landslides. Should I use a fixed-wing or a multirotor (ex: quadcopter) UAV for this type of field research ? I know that there are different types of landslides, some of them can stretch only on a few slopes (1-5-10 ha), or hundreds of land surfaces. So, what type of UAV should I use ? Thx. Arhanghelul
