Abstract [en]

The purpose of this paper is to investigate the height uncertainty of digital terrain models (DTMs) generated from unmanned aircraft system (UAS) surveys over different surface types – asphalt, gravel and grass. The data used in the study was acquired during two UAS flights performed in spring 2014 with a fixed wing aircraft and two different cameras, from the flying height of about 100 m, and it was processed in different software suites – Agisoft PhotoScan, RapidStation and RapidTerrain. The results show that it is possible to achieve the height uncertainty (expressed as a Root Mean Square Error) in a DTM of below 0.02 m on asphalt surfaces and below 0.04 m on gravel and grass surfaces, provided an overcast sky.
