The UAV process of mapping has been a learning process for me. In my opinion, UAV's are great for non vegetated surfaces such as open pit limestone or surface coal mines along with update mapping for active on-going bare earth contruction sites. I cannot obtain sufficient/accurate contours/data in dense brush and forested areas, even when the leaves are off the trees. I am concentrating my business on sites that require volumetrics between different time related surfaces.
