Drone photography with high resolution to make orthophoto mosaics: result of stitching ortho-rectified photo’s used for 2D mapping

Drone orthophoto mosaic

Terra Drone Europe uses drones and rotor systems to produce aerial photography at low heights. This enables us to act quickly, flexibly and in a cost saving manner.

The low heights yields unique and very high resolution imagery on which every detail can be seen. By using a geometrically calibrated camera and lens with additional ground control points it is possible to derive the coordinates of every pixel in the images.

Image resolutions varying between 1 and 5 cm can be obtained.

The imagery is further corrected for terrain heights and color differences due to changing sun conditions. All the imagery can then be mosaiced into one seamless orthophoto mosaic that can be directly imported into any CAD or GIS system and that can be used to map or measure. Go to our survey of the Afsluitdijk for an example of an orthophoto mosaic.
