Denmark: Hans Christian Andersen Airport, Danish Geodata Agency and COWI have signed an agreement to build a photogrammetric test facility for UAS in the airport's national test center – UAS Test Center Denmark.

According to Niels Henrik Broge, special consultant, Danish Geodata Agency, the increasing use of civil drones for mapping purposes has attracted Danish Geodata Agency as an active partner in the project. The drone in itself is not so interesting – but rather the data it can collect. With the photogrammetric test facility in UAS Test Center Denmark, it will now be possible – as one of the only places in Europe – to ensure and test the quality of the data collected by drones used for mapping of an area. The test facility is expected to be of interest to international users and companies that currently have to use a few suitable alternatives in Europe.
