UAV-based remote sensing of landslides

Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) equipped with digital compact cameras can be used to map landslides quickly and at a high ground resolution. The UAV-system developed in-house is a low-cost quad-rotor and has the advantage over traditional methods of allowing flexible deployments capable of acquiring both high-temporal and spatial resolution data. Images taken by our mini quad-rotor UAV can been used to produce ortho-mosaics and digital terrain models.
