Interested in Aerial mapping?
I found this very useful guide on the process of surveying a piece of land that I thought I would share with all those interested in this application of drones. I am interested in this myself but knew little about the actual process - this video certainly helped with that.
In general, this video covers what equipment is best used for this process, what programmes are best to use, and how to overcome some common problems. For example, in this example he uses a GoPro camera that wasn't GPS enabled and so he goes through how to use the tool QGIS that manages to georeference your finished picture. He was able use this camera in the first place because Pix4D now supports the distorted lens of the GoPro - great news. This process also results in a comprehensive quality report, making it one of the most useful applications of drones today.
So, if this has interested you in any way, this video is well worth a watch and happy mapping!
