Small UAS data processing options and requirements
Most software designed to process imagery from small UAS uses a photogrammetry technique called Structure from Motion (SfM). Small UAS users can find SfM options either online or as a desktop standalone. Some online vendors include the option to upload images from the field. For SfM to work best, users should be completely familiar with requirements for the quality of the input images, sidelap and endlap, and any other input demanded by the SfM software. The presentation’s goal is to give the audience a quick overview of options for processing sUAS imagery as well as some fundamental requirements for employing SfM.
