Abstract

PurposeThe purpose of this paper is to discuss unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) and the comparison of image processing software.Design/methodology/approachImages from a drone are used and processed with new digital image processing software, Imagine UAV® of Erdas imagine 2015®. The products (Digital Surface Model and ortho images) are validated with check points (CPs) measured in the field with Global Positioning System. Moreover, similar products are produced by Agisoft PhotoScan® software and are compared with both the products of Imagine UAV and the CPs.FindingsThe results reveal that the two software tools are almost equivalent, while the accuracies of their products are similar to the accuracies of the external orientations of drone images.Originality/valueComparison of image processing software.
