Event description

Description

The Cooperative Research Centre for Spatial Information (CRCSI) is developing QA4UAV as an assisted ‘best practice’ process for the capture and automated quality assurance of imagery and photogrammetry data acquired from Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs, or Drones) and other airborne platforms.

The UAV sector has expanded rapidly in recent years, the QA4UAV project is a response to the high level of wasted expenditure and poor captures that have resulted from organisations not specifying enough detail within their capture requests.

Very simple specifications such the generation of orthorectified imagery (images placed in its real space on earth) are not specified, let alone adjusting for height, density (in point clouds for detailed automated assessments), image overlap, designation of sensor type (to determine mineral/vegetation characteristics) are not specified resulting in wasted investment in the capture process.

The CRC for Spatial Information is hosting this workshop on the 2nd November in Christchurch to look at requirements gathering for developing the UAV imagery standards and workflow.

The aims of the workshop are to:

  • Identify the strategies used to acquire UAV imagery data

  • Identify the range of applications in which UAV imagery data is employed

  • Understand the specific acquisition and data requirements of these applications

  • Understand the expectations users have for a quality assurance tool
