Brief Description

The aim of this course is to provide field-based demonstrations of Aerial Surveying using Unmanned Aerial Vehicle to acquire ultra-high resolution imagery of the study area, which will later (in the lab) be used to generate various geographic information products such as orthophoto, point clouds, digital elevation models (DEMs), digital surface models (DSMs) and detailed mapping from high spatial-resolution orthomosaic image. In particular, the detailed mapping of various land surface entities can be mapped accurately on the produced high resolution image.

Drone technology also known as Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) is the future for cost-effective and rapid data acquisition. Furthermore, UAVs can be used in high-risk situations and inaccessible areas in real-time. UAVs have been found to be a low-cost, alternative digital photogrammetry as opposed to the Light detection and ranging (LiDAR) technique. This has revolutionized 3-D topographic surveys in most geological engineering and science works.

Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of the course, the delegates are expected to:

  • Understand how to use a UAV to acquire data over an area of interest.
  • Know how to process raw UAV data in Agisoft in-order to produce geoinformation products.
  • Know how to analyse and interpret the generated geoinformations products for various applications.
  •  

Course Content

The following will be covered:

  • Day 1: Introduction to UAV data processing; Understanding the flight plan; Understanding the placement of ground control points in area of interest; departure to site for flying and acquiring UAV data
  • Day 2: Step-by-Step processing of UAV-acquired data in Agisoft; Generation of geoinformation products such as orthophoto, point clouds, digital elevation models (DEMs) and digital surface models (DSMs).   
  • Day 3: Analysis of the generated geoinformation products, followed by group discussions on applications of processed outputs
  •  

Entry Requirements

Delegates must at least have the technical background in Land surveying and GIS.
