UAS mapping for crisis information with DLR ZKI

UAS mapping for crisis information with DLR ZKI

m

July 14, 2023

Our UAS team met with the crisis response team of DLR EOC and WFP on a test site owned by BW for discussing UAS RGB, multispectral and lidar acquisition for rapid disaster mapping and autonomous operations. Our colleagues Dr. Mirjana Bevanda and Dr Martina Wilde collected some drone based data for outlining the potential for this specific site and will continue to acquire more relevant data within forthcoming meetings.
The potential to map areas rapidly for mitigating risks or mapping impacted areas on very high spatial resolution is huge using various types of UAS or UAV. 
We are very much looking forward to further collaboration for mapping floods, fires, mud slides or just the general terrain for emergency services and rapid response teams.
