Abstract: The term Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) is often directly associated with the armed forces due to their widely-criticized use of such vehicles on the modern battlefield. However, with the advancement of UAV technology, the acquisition and operational cost of small civilian UAV have reduced while their functionalities have increased. Therefore, a wide variety of new civilian applications have emerged. Mapping industry has been benefited as affordable UAV can partially replace traditional platforms, such as helicopters and small aircrafts, for low altitude photography acquisition. Although relatively new to the industry, the use of UAV is rapidly commercialized and they are expected to have a sizeable impact on the mapping industry in the coming years. The aim of this work was to test the use of a low-cost UAV for orthophoto production and Digital Surface Model (DSM) creation, to be used for the design of a new 23km high voltage line of Electricity Authority of Cyprus.
