The use of drones for environmental purposes is becoming increasingly important. Whether temperature distribution or air pollution measurement, the scope of sensor capabilities is getting wider in short intervals. Optical systems can e.g. control the quality of waters or provide vegetation index imagery that can help to improve the health of plants and trees.
The sector of geomatics almost already depends to a large extent on drone imagery, that enables the creation of up-to-date maps at high resolution for any kind of built-up city area or rural landscape, small and large scale. Aerial survey is one of the leading innovation drivers for the drone industry. Here the technical synergies are very dynamic and expansive.
