USA: High Accuracy Mapping with DJI Phantom & Inspire Drones
This colloquium will teach participants how to do mapping with DJI Phantom 4 Pro and Inspire 2 drones. The lecture will start with an overview of drone mapping and briefly discuss the sweet spots for drone mapping that considers both FAA restrictions as well as the physical capabilities of the Phantom/Inspire drones. Camera calibration techniques will be presented along with the contribution that calibration makes to overall project accuracy. The audience will be introduced to new hardware devices and collection techniques that can be used to achieve the centimeters-level positioning necessary to do topographic mapping and differential volumetrics. The complete data processing workflow from point cloud generation through product creation using elements of GeoCue’s Bring Your Own Drone (BYOD) Mapping Kit will be presented.
