Drone mapping.

Drone mapping has become one of the most important tools in the mapping industry today. Drones have revolutionized the way we collect geographic data, offering better accuracy, greater coverage and lower costs than traditional methods.





Drones are equipped with high-resolution cameras, LiDAR sensors and image processing software to capture detailed aerial images and topographic data. These data are then used to create topographic maps, numerical field models (MNT) and ortho-photos. Topographic maps provide information on the altitude and shape of the terrain, while NCDs allow 3D visualization of the terrain. Ortho-photos are aerial images rectified to align with the terrain, they allow accurate visualization of buildings, roads and terrain.


Drones are used to map hard-to-reach areas,



Such as forests, mountains and coastal areas. They are also used to map urban areas, for projects such as building inspection, urban planning and forest fire management. Drones also monitor environmental changes such as landslides, coastal erosion and deforestation.


In the cartography industry,


Drones are increasingly used to replace traditional methods such as aerial photography, GPS surveys and field studies. Drones offer significant advantages such as speed, accuracy, flexibility and lower costs.


In summary,


Drone mapping is an essential tool for mapping professionals, offering better accuracy, greater coverage and lower costs than traditional methods. Technological advances continue to improve the capabilities of drones, paving the way for new applications in the mapping industry.
