Mar 8, 2016 -- UAS for Mapping and 3D Modelling improvements are developing in an increasing pace and UAS are used in more and more application areas (e.g precision agriculture, land surveying, Infrastructure, mining etc.). Geo-matching.com has created an overview of some interesting UAV application videos and case studies.
River creation and modelling (Aibotix)
River surveying and creation of a 3D model with the Aibot X6 UAV
The Aibot X6 UAV is used to survey 3.6 km of the Bavarian river Alz which shall be renaturated. The generated data is post processed into a precise 3D model.
The UX5 HP Captures the Rio Tinto Copper Mine in Spain (Trimble)
The Trimble UX5 HP is a professional aerial mapping system, designed to capture the highest image accuracy for survey applications. The features of the new UX5 High Precision include an integrated Trimble GNSS receiver, a powerful new camera, and a selection of camera lenses available for the ultimate in system flexibility.
Crash Scene Reconstruction Using an eBee Drone (senseFly)
This video is a fly-through animation of a 3D point cloud, which was produced by a senseFly eBee mapping drone. The point cloud depicts a real-life crash scene, over a mile long, in which two vehicles crashed while drag racing.
RIEGL's RiCOPTER UAV at Castle Vianden (RIEGL)
In April 2015, the German company ArcTron 3D GmbH, renowned in Cultural Heritage and Archeology, worked together with RIEGL in a quite unique research Project.
Precision Agriculture with Pteryx UAV (Trigger Composites)
Special version of Pteryx UAV dedicated to precision agriculture. Equipped with two cameras: daylight and NIR for easy calculation of crop stress maps (NDVI or other indexes).
