The International Information Center for Geotechnical Engineers

A paper published in open-access in the ISSMGE International Journal of Geoengineering Case Histories highlights the role that Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) can have in geotechnical engineering.

Published in News on Publications join forces with University of Michigan, GEER reconnaissance team and GNS science geologists and engineers to provide UAV expertise in 3D mapping of landslides and ground-surface fault ruptures.

The Use of Small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles for Post-Disaster Geotechnical Reconnaissance Webinar outlines some useful aspects on UAV platforms, sensors and regulations and focuses on the integration of this technology on post-disaster reconnaissance through interesting case studies.
