Land use mapping by drone, Panama

General Project Information

Project Land use mapping based on drone data acquisition and analysis 
Location         Panama
Project duration   March – April 2017

Project description

Data collection and analysis was provided for an area of 500 hectares in Panama. Images taken helped to create a mosaic landscape picture with a resolution of 5cm/pixel allowing for the differentiation between productive and unproductive areas and different land uses. By ground control points a precise orthorectification of the created landscape mosaic picture is facilitated. Mapping by drone provides for a precision usually better than common satellite image analysis. It also shows that mapping only with regular topography tools (handheld GPS) can lead to over- or underestimation of productive areas.

Key Services

  • Acquisition of aerial drone images and data
  • Land use digitalization, area calculation and mapping based on high resolution mosaic (5cm/pixel)
