Small Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) surveys provide detailed information of temporal landscape changes, post disaster landscape, and potentially high-resolution digital terrain models acquired from aerial photos taken from the drone. Our scientists use a combination of techniques, including images taken from the UAV, to investigate faults and volcanic activities.
This technique provides detailed aerial investigation of the temporal landscape changes, the rapid response of the post disaster assessment, it also provide us the chance of generating the high-resolution digital terrain model (DTM) from the aerial photos taken from the drones.
The rapid-developed small UAV system (Drone) brings a new era of low-altitude unmanned aerial survey. Researchers at EOS have quickly adopted this technique, and applied it to volcanic and tectonic-related geomorphological studies.
The CGO has the capacity of using the drone to conduct aerial surveys, and is capable of acquiring, processing, and analyzing these aerial survey data.
