COASTAL MAPPING OF JINU-DO WITH UAV FOR BUSAN SMART CITY, KOREA
For illustrating estuarine and coastal morphology, UAV has proved its effectiveness in providing accurate and diverse information, but unfortunately, no such application have been undertaken for Nakdong River Estuary for ecosystem-based coastal mapping. In this study an attempt has been made to coastal mapping of Jinu-do in Nakdong River Estuary, and to identify beach volume change and vegetation area migration caused by wave and current from 2017 to 2018 with UAV. Unmanned aerial vehicle used for mapping was M600 hexa-copter drone (DJI, china). To create UAV point clouds a standard digital camera can provide imagery with Sony A7 mirror-less camera. Total 34 Ground Control Points (GCPs) accurately surveyed with a RTK-VRS, network use real-time kinematic solutions to provide high-accuracy. Stereo-matching using Agisoft PhotoScan obtained DEM. Using GCPS the vertical accuracy of the DSMs were found to be 5 cm or better. Using the PhotoScan, the area of Jinu-do orthophotos were calculated and the area of vegetation calculated using QGIS. As a result, the vegetation area was increased about 5 % more than the topography. This study of coastal mapping at Jinu-do demonstrate that the integration of UAV techniques and photogrammetric software and analysis tools can provide new concepts into the estuarine.
