Unmanned aerial systems (UAS) are rapidly emerging as flexible platforms for capturing images and other data across scientific disciplines. Many colleges and universities are developing courses on UAS data acquisition. Basics of Drone Imagery and Data Acquisition and Processing is a comprehensive introductory text on how to use unmanned aircraft systems for data collection and analysis. Provides best practices for data collection mission planning and hands-on learning modules focused on UAS data collection, processing and applications.
FUNCTIONEstablishes a step-by-step approach to identifying appropriate tools and methods for UAS data/image acquisition and processing.It provides hands-on practical knowledge with visual interpretation, well organized and designed for a typical 16-week UAS course offered at universities and colleges.Suitable for all levels of readers and requires no previous knowledge of UAS, remote sensing, digital image processing or geospatial analysis.
Includes real environmental applications along with data interpretations and software used; the exercises in Chapters 8 to 19 have free downloadable support materials.It brings together the expertise of a wide range of UAS researchers and practitioners across the geospatial sciences.
This book provides a general introduction to drones along with a series of hands-on exercises that students and researchers can engage in to learn how to integrate drone data into real-world applications. No prior knowledge of remote sensing, GIS, or drones is required to use this book. Readers will learn to process various types of UAS imagery for applications (e.g., precision agriculture, forestry, urban landscape) and apply this knowledge to environmental monitoring and land use studies.
