Remotely piloted aircraft can be used to acquire high-resolution geospatial data, including topographic maps, elevation plans, digital terrain models, and orthophotos. Terrain mapping is a surveying technique that involves capturing geospatial data to create topographic maps, elevation plans, digital terrain models, and orthophotos. Thanks to their ability to fly close to the ground and collect real-time data, UAVs provide a precise and high-resolution option for geospatial data acquisition. Among these data, we find topographic maps, which consist of detailed representations of the terrain and its natural features, such as rivers, hills, valleys, and forests.
Elevation plans are three-dimensional representations of the terrain that are useful for planning the construction of buildings, bridges, and other infrastructure that require a solid and stable foundation. These plans allow determining the height and exact position of every point on the terrain.
Digital terrain models are computerized representations of the terrain and its characteristics, such as slope and roughness. These models are used to design infrastructure and predict the consequences of any modifications to the terrain. Orthophotos, on the other hand, are high-resolution aerial images of the terrain that can be used to visualize specific details and identify any issues or risks.
