Mapping Techniques Using Drones
  • Description
  • Outcome
  • Certification
  • In the free online course Mapping Techniques Using Drones you will learn how drones can be used to make sophisticated maps and the technology that is used to do it.

    The course begins by describing how drones are used to create accurate maps using GPS functionality. You will learn about different types of maps that can be created using a drone and what is involved in planning out a flight for creating a map. The course describes the common aerial views used in mapping and how to achieve good image quality.

    The course then introduces the process of image overlap and how it is used to get the best results in post-processing. You will learn about the software used to process images on a computer to create maps, and how 3D models are made from hundreds of overlapping still images.

    Finally, you will learn about drone mapping in practice and how it can be used to help people. You will learn about community mapping, which encourages community members to make spatial representations of their own land. The course also describes cadastral mapping, the spatial representation of cadastre records, and how archaeologists and geologists use drone mapping as part of their studies.

    This free course will be of great interest to anyone who is interested how drones can be used to create sophisticated maps.

  • Having completed this course you will be able to:
    - Discuss different types of maps that can be created using drones.
    - Describe what is involved in planning out the flight of the drone for maps.
    - Discuss image overlap, quality and views and their importance in creating maps.
    - Discuss how GPS is used for creating maps with drones.
    - Describe the process of community mapping.
    - Describe the process of cadastral mapping.
    - Discuss how archaeologists and geologists can use drones for mapping.
