UAVs - Geodata acquisition and mapping

UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) or drone is an aircraft without a human pilot aboard. The flight of UAVs may operate with various degrees of autonomy: either under remote control by a human operator, or fully or intermittently autonomously, by onboard computers.

Quick intro to UAVs photogrammetry and lidar mapping.
