What is drone mapping?

4 March 2021

Drone mapping is the process of mounting a sensor on a drone or unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) to capture data from the air. There are many different sensors which can be mounted on a drone, but some of the most common types are LiDAR scanners, high-definition aerial cameras and thermal imaging sensors. A device like the eBee X is equipped with three different sensors alone. Data captured by drones can be used to produce 2D or 3D maps depending on the application. The use of drones has dramatically increased in recent years due to their ability to map large or inaccessible areas quickly and safely.
