This report introduces 3 post-processing techniques that can be used on images captured from an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) to distort the images in such a way as to make all the images appear as though they were taken from a uniform altitude, pitch, roll and yaw and from a rectilinear lens, meaning that when the images are stitched together the resulting map is accurate. The recent increase in demand for UAV technologies in the marketplace has been illustrated by a host of new products from… CONTINUE READING
