Processing and presenting drone data in an open source spatial data infrastructure

Mapbender is a graduated project of the Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo). It is a web based content management system, used to display, edit, overlay and manage distributed Web Map Services. Mapbender suits the need of distributing spatial data to many users. It is used by small municipalities and large companies as well. Mapbender is also a perfect fit for making available large amounts of aerial photographs, captured by unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

The presentation will give a quick overview of a basic and advanced Mapbender application, integrating processed UAV data. We will also show a conceptual workflow of processing raw UAV data and generating point clouds, digital elevation models and orthorectified imagery using OpenDroneMap, „an open source toolkit for processing aerial drone imagery“.
