2nd International Electronic Conference on Remote Sensing
G: Recent Trends in UAV Remote Sensing
In recent years, UAVs have undergone significant advances in equipment capabilities and now have the capacity to acquire high resolution imagery from many angles in a cost effective, efficient manner. UAVs are used in diverse remote sensing applications such as Earth observation, precision farming, cultural heritage monitoring, urban monitoring, forest management, fire monitoring, disaster prevention, search and rescue, security, mapping and monitoring of desertification industrial plant inspection, 3D mapping, and environmental studies and monitoring. With recent advances in technology, UAVs are also able to include new sensors, such as multispectral, hyperspectral, infrared and thermal cameras, lidar and other sensors.
