Aerial Photography Mapping Patrick Coyle, P.E. – Belize Open Source This session will demonstrate Simple Aerial Photography Mapping with Balloons or Kites. Aerial photomaps can be very useful for EWB teams for their projects and the communities they work with. Example applications include: community planning, site planning, land boundary adjudication, agricultural planning, ecological evaluations, and documenting changes such as cutting of rain forest, clearing of land, etc. Weather permitting, we’ll meet outside and discuss how to do the mapping, covering what’s needed to take the photos and use software to stitch them together into a single georegistered photomap. We’ll fly kites or balloons to take pictures and afterwards make and share the map. We’ll briefly discuss advanced topics including integration of gps data, dual-camera based multispectral imagery, 3-D Digital Elevation Models, UAVs and automated image processing. Participants are making map from photos taken during session.
