UAV technology is undeniably changing the face of data collection. From simple photography, to complex aerial LiDAR, professional industries are seeing improvements in the efficiency and cost of projects by utilizing UAV data acquisition processes. The applications of UAV captured data sets are evolving at an ever-expanding rate as industry adoption becomes standard. In this rapidly growing sector, many data gathering procedures are being revolutionized. This ranges from GIS and cartographic applications, to transmission and distribution line inspection and mapping.

As this field rapidly expands, quality assurance, accountability, and transparency, must be maintained as the mapping community explores the possibilities afforded by UAVs. More than one organization has come to regret compromising on conventional wisdom in basic mapping and survey standards in an effort to be at the forefront of sUAS technology.

We explore the good, the bad, and the ugly of UAV data collection standards. What are the pitfalls when working with UAVs? What are the advantages? And how can you ensure you are getting the best quality data?
