Chandigarh to be the 1st city to implement Technology of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Drones

Chandigarh, 23rd September, 2016: Sh. Ajit Balaji Joshi, IAS, Deputy Commissioner, U.T. Chandigarh today reviewed the Technology of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Drones. Chandigarh is the 1st city to implement the technology of Aerial Survey/resurvey. The Drones have been implemented in collaboration with PEC Chandigarh and IIIT Delhi. Sector-7 Chandigarh is the 1st area to be surveyed in Pilot Phase of the Drone to achieve the component of Aerial Survey/resurvey for UT Chandigarh.
The specifications of drone are as follow:
Parameter DJI phantom 3
Velocity 8m/s
Flight time Max 23 mins
Camera resolution 4K Resolution
Elevation of flight 60 Meters
Communication range 2Kms

The Technology of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) (Drones) is capable of delivering Cadastral maps overlaid on the Digital Elevation Map (tiff/jpg format) with minimum of ±2.5 cm accuracy, Orthomosaic 1:10000 (jpg/tiff format) and Digital elevation maps for sectors 7.
The aim of the 3D-GIS Mapping using Drones is to build a cost effective and efficient system in order to map and measure each and every corner/dimension or the legacy data of every property in UT Chandigarh. It will also help in gathering data using Drone technology to generate high resolution 3D maps/imaginaries of Chandigarh. The 3D-GIS Mapping using Drones aims at change detection: Requirement of superimposing the already existed cadastral maps of UT Chandigarh over the drone based 3D maps to study the changes that have taken place over time like Building Violation or encroachments. It will develop highly responsive Geographical Information System where in a single click, the details of each and every property in the UT Chandigarh can be retrieved.
