UAV LiDAR vs photogrammetry:
The ultimate guide
January 14, 2019
One of the primary reasons for UAV photogrammetry is the versatility of data that can be achieved from a single survey, including 3D point clouds and photographs using a technique called structure from motion.
However, works are often commissioned incorrectly by lifting specifications from a different technology with a similar name; flown LiDAR.
When comparing UAV LiDAR and photogrammetry, it is key to understand that both technologies have their applications as well as limitations, and in the majority of use cases they are complementary. What are the differences and which method is more suitable for your project?
