New technology makes the collection and analysis of large
amounts of data easier than ever, and this data can be a
compelling resource for decision-makers and elected officials.
This session explores how off-the-shelf Unmanned Aerial
Vehicles (UAVs) and the Internet of Things (IoT) can be used to
collect and analyze urban big data on everything from parking
to water contamination. In addition, we’ll discuss how to
integrate photogrammetry software such as Pix4D with UAVs
to produce orthomosaic and 3D models of the environment.
Case studies will include a parking census pilot project
conducted with the city of Syracuse, NY, and a UAV-based
solution to Lake Erie’s algae bloom problems. The session will
also include a discussion on the preservation of privacy rights
and the ethics of big data and UAV technology.
