Remote sensing methods for power line corridor surveys


Originally published in the ISPRS Journal of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing

The field of remote sensing is vast – but how do drones shift the paradigm?

Remote sensing and resulting data analysis is a booming research field, and power line inspection is a particularly interesting problem. Most previous studies have concentrated on the mapping and analysis of network components.

This technical article by Leena Matikainen from the Finnish Geospatial Research Institute, in collaboration with Sharper Shape, explores the hottest issues and lays down a path for further development.
