Photogrammetry is the creation of maps from digital aerial photographs which have been made with special high-resolution cameras.

How does Drone Photogrammetry work?

By attaching lightweight photo cameras to drones, high-resolution digital 3D aerial photos can be generated, which can then be processed with special software.

This technology can be used for many different purposes:
  • creating maps
  • gathering geo-information 
  • digital aerial photographs
  • digital orthophotographs
  • 3D relief models
  • high density point clouds
  • ortho mosaics


These 3D spatial data of (objects on) the earth's surface can be used to calculate distances, surfaces and volumes. The current technology allows us to make elevation models with a resolution and vertical precision of better than a few centimeters.
