Aerial photogrammetry is a method for mapping topography where multiple overlapping images are taken across an area and are used to create orthophotos and 3D spatial models of the topography. Recently a large number of micro (> 5kg) unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have become available at a reasonable cost.
