Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV / Drone) have started to be widely used in mapping sector in parallel to the technological improvements in their usage in other sectors. Delta Lidar produces economic, fast and accurate maps with a drone that has RTK/GPS technology and is specifically designed for mapping.

DRONE MAPPING PRINCIPLE
Delta Lidar produces Digital Elevation Model (DEM), Orthophoto, and 3D Model following a Dense Image Matching method using the highly balanced and accurate coordinates received from the RTK/GPS system on the Drone through TUSAGA-Aktif ( Cors-TR)
AGRICULTURAL APPLICATIONS OF DRONE MAPPING
Delta Lidar produces various maps for agricultural productivity analyses using the time economic advantage of Drone equipped with RTK/GPS system and Multispectral Camera. Those maps can be periodically produced for the analyses of product development and disease control. Firstly, image matching methods are balanced. Then, 3D land model and ortho-mosaic images are obtained from this balanced data set. Finally, maps used for product quality and supply such as the normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) are produced by evaluating the previously obtained ortho-mosaic images.
ADVANTAGES OF DRONE MAPPING
Drone Mapping allows mapping very large areas in a short time period with low costs but no concession on accuracy.
Mapping Solar Energy Plants
Producing the topography maps required for the solar energy plant area and mapping the path from plant area to the main electric transportation line are carried out by DRONE in a short time period and with high precision and accuracy in 3D format. Maps produced with DRONE technology provides very precise values such as slope, level, coordinates, and sun angle, all of which are very important in locating the panels on the land. Further, periodic productivity analyses operating plants can be carried out with the data received from multi band cameras integrated on to DRONE.
