ARE Corporation – Utilizing UAS Based LiDAR Compared to Photogrammetric Techniques

Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS or Drone) provide an alternative approach to traditional terrestrial and aerial acquisition mapping and ground-based surveys. Picking up where traditional methods of acquisition are limited, such as safety, time, expense, and project site accessibility, UAS unlock new opportunities for acquiring geospatial information via LiDAR and photogrammetry. LiDAR and photogrammetric techniques provide integral solutions for customers at […]

Rolling Shutter Effect Important in UAV Photogrammetry

Image of Figure 1

Many are not aware that photographs taken with a UAV are subject to the rolling shutter effect. (Be sure to watch the video at the end for great visual explanation.) The main disadvantage of UAV photogrammetry is that it uses non-metric cameras. These cameras have low-quality movable lenses, a small focal length, and most have a CMOS sensor with an […]
