GEOG 892
Geospatial Applications of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)

Summary and Final Tasks



Congratulations! You have just completed Lesson 7. I hope that you appreciated the value of the UAS imagery in producing geospatial data that is suitable for many applications in our day to day life. Ortho photo and digital elevation model are indispensable tools used in many environmental and engineering projects. Without them, we would have to put many boots on the ground to survey the terrain and provide the necessary data for engineering and planning. Practicing with the processing software Pix4D, which I selected for the course, will help you tremendously in appreciating the quality and value of the digital ortho photo and digital elevation model.

Final Tasks

1 Complete the Lesson 7 Quiz.
2 Work on your final project report and presentation (due next week).
3 Practice generating DSM and ortho mosaic at different GSDs using Pix4D and evaluate the differences in qualities.
4 Continue working on your COA Application and the Final Project Report.
