Land use mapping by drone, Panama

About this project

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.
