Through photogrammetry (discussed in part I) and a drone’s built-in camera, precise maps can be produced and analyzed, aiding in all types of physical measurements and calculations for distance, area and even volume. Because this application is extremely data-driven, concentrating on software used for image processing should be the focal point for purchasing decisions.
