UAS + Photogrammetry Reduces Cost and Risk of Surveys
07/01/2016 | Jerry Fireman
sUAS Guide
Applications: All, Geology & Mining, Magazine Articles, Surveying, and UAS / UAV / Drone

This article describes the use of UAS by two PhotoModeler customers in civil engineering and geology work. One customer specializes in rock slope surveys, and the other in environmental monitoring and remediation. They both found that using UAS and PhotoModeler greatly reduced their costs and reduced risk.  See p. 54 in full online magazine.

Photogrammetry Helps Surveyors Save Time and Improve Accuracy
02/04/2016 | Jerry Fireman
American Surveyor
Applications: All, Magazine Articles, Surveying, and UAS / UAV / Drone

“Surveying is a time and labor intensive process that requires extremely high levels of accuracy. Two North American surveyors are addressing this challenge by using photogrammetry to increase the number of points surveyed by several orders of magnitude while reducing field time by half or more. Photogrammetry is the process of generating measurements and models from photograph…”

PHOTO REALISTIC 3D MODELING WITH UAV: GEDİK AHMET PASHA
09/02/2013 | M.Uysal,, A.S.Toprak, N.Polat, Afyon Kocatepe Üniversitesi
International Archives of the Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing and Spatial Information Sciences, Volume XL-5/W2, 2013
Applications: All, Architecture, and UAS / UAV / Drone

“Many of the cultural heritages in the world have been totally or partly destroyed by natural events and human activities such as earthquake, flood and fire until the present day. Cultural heritages are legacy for us as well; it is also a fiduciary for next generation. To deliver this fiduciary to the future generations, cultural heritages have to be protected and registered. There are different methods for applying this registry but Photogrammetry is the most accurate and rapid method. Photogrammetry enables us to registry cultural heritages and generating 3D photo-realistic models. “

SURVEYING A LANDSLIDE IN A ROAD EMBANKMENT USING UNMANNED AERIAL VEHICLE PHOTOGRAMMETRY
09/15/2011 | F. Carvajal, F. Agüera, M. Pérez
International Archives of the Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing and Spatial Information Sciences, Vol. XXXVIII-1/C22, UAV-g 2011, Conference on Unmanned Aerial Vehicle in Geomatics, Zurich, Switzerland
Applications: All, Geology & Mining, Surveying, and UAS / UAV / Drone

Most of the works of civil engineering, and some others applications, need to be designed using a basic cartography with a suitable scale to the accuracy and extension of the plot. The Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Photogrammetry covers the gap between classical manned aerial photogrammetry and hand-made surveying techniques because it works in the close-range domain, combining aerial and terrestrial photogrammetry, but also introduces low-cost alternatives.The aim of this work is developing of an accurate and low-cost method to characterize landslides located on the size of a road.

DIGITAL CAMERA CALIBRATION USING IMAGES TAKEN FROM AN UNMANNED AERIAL VEHICLE
09/14/2011 | M. Pérez, F. Agüera, F. Carvajal
International Archives of the Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing and Spatial Information Sciences, Vol. XXXVIII-1/C22
Applications: All, Engineering & Science, Geology & Mining, and UAS / UAV / Drone

For calibrating the camera, an accurate determination of the interior orientation parameters is needed. For more accurate results, the calibration images should be taken under conditions that are similar to the field samples.The aim of this work is the establishment of an efficient and accurate digital camera calibration method to be used in particular working conditions, as it can be found with our UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) photogrammetric projects.
