Geospatial Drone Mapping in Brisbane

We used the DJI MavicPro to undertake geospatial drone mapping of a new land development in Brisbane. The autonomous flight control app DroneDeploy was used to control the Mavic in the classic “lawnmower” pattern while it collected 271 images over a period of 10 minutes. We flew the drone at the recommended height of 70m AGL ¬†After the mapping run, the images (JPG) were uploaded to the DroneDeploy cloud servers for processing into an orthomosaic and a 3D Sketchfab model.

The Mavic has now proven to be a very reliable aircraft with an ability for consistently acquiring high-quality images for use in photogrammetry. Similar drone mapping projects include the White Hill Quarry with a recent blog post covering geospatial drone mapping using consumer drones.
