INEGI releases a note on the use of UAVs

The Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) is the newest innovation to conventional aerial vehicles and satellites joins in gathering remote sensing data. The National Institute of Statistics and Geography (INEGI) has published a study entitled “The use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles in geospatial tasks.”

The expert opinion regarding the use of UAVs or “drones” in the geospatial tasks, coupled with new techniques and equipment in digital photogrammetry, is very promising, since its use in the field of geomatics is very important in government and the general population sectors.

These being really versatile, economic, quality of the products obtained and also allow to develop in relatively short periods of time and even real-time, multi-tasking computers uptake and processing of geospatial information that will be helpful in timely decision-making.

So the technology is ready for operation, and continuous process improvement; however, will take some years to full implementation, since there is widespread concern of governments, that the unregulated use of these devices involves risks associated with the misuse of this technology, which is to structure a strict regulation in use.
