Project Description

One of the major applications of aerial surveillance is the monitoring and detection of change in man-made environments. The causes of change can be attributed to climate variations, plant and wildlife, human activity and natural disasters, each of which must be monitored for a variety of scientific, economic or regulatory reasons. Focusing on urban and semi-urban landscapes, there is growing interest in monitoring how these change as a result of construction, for planning purposes, but also as a result of natural disasters (fire, floods, earthquakes) for the purposes of coordinating disaster response or settling insurance claims. In this project we will work with Geospatial Insight Ltd to investigate the use of drones for the automatic surveillance and change detection in a man-made environment. We will be building an automated surveying system that would revolutionize the change monitoring of urban scenes by lowering the costs and increasing the accuracy.
