Use of photogrammetry or LiDAR for surveying/mapping via drone

Unmanned Systems Source has released an article designed to help surveyors decide when to use photogrammetry or LiDAR for surveying and mapping via drone. Drone technology has made a huge impact on aerial mapping and surveying. Drones offer many advantages including the ability to capture photos at predefined elevations and at a predetermined overlap percentage. Today, drones mounted with LiDAR systems can map these same areas quickly, affordably and with far less logistical issues.
