Research output: Book/ReportBook


Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UASs) are a rapidly evolving technology with an expanding array of diverse applications. In response to the continuing evolution of this technology, this book discusses UAVs and similar systems, platforms, and sensors, as well as exploring some of their environmental applications. It explains how they can be used for mapping, monitoring, and modelling a wide variety of different environmental aspects and, at the same time, addresses some of the current constraints placed on realising the potential use of the technology, such as flight duration and distance, safety, and the invasion of privacy.
Features of the book:
Provides necessary theoretical foundations for pertinent subject matter areas
Introduces the role and value of UAVs for geographical data acquisition and the ways to acquire and process the data
Provides a synthesis of ongoing research and a focus on the use of technology for small-scale image and spatial data acquisition in an environmental context
Written by experts of the technology who bring together UAS tools and resources for environmental specialists.
