The Three Tiers of Mapping Drones

WHITEPAPER SUMMARY

In this paper we examine the criteria of efficiency, accuracy, economy and ease of use
required for drone mapping. With a photogrammetric focus, we differentiate DMS into three tier categories based upon their mapping ability.

KEY POINTS

  • What is photogrammetry?
  • Photogrammetric drone mapping
  • Base mathematics of photogrammetry
  • On-board measurement
  • DMS base criteria
  • Factors affecting criteria
  • Linking photogrammetry and DMS criteria
  • Three-Tiers
