Identifying Beach Erosion with Drone2Map for ArcGIS
June 21, 2016–Esri, the world’s largest geographical information systems (GIS) company, shares how the company teamed with McKim & Creed to test the efficacy of using unmanned aerial systems (UAS) to collect data for coastal surveys. In May 2016, the two companies conducted a proof of concept beach mapping project at Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina. The purpose was to compare UAS technology with conventional data collection techniques. Esri has published information on the joint project here.
