"In response to the rapidly evolving technology and applications UAS technology, this book discusses both UAV and similar systems' platforms and environmental applications. The platforms and sensors provide the setting while the applications chapters are focused on the environment from monitoring to mapping. The book also addresses the constraints placed on the use of the technology in some circumstances e.g. safety, invasion of privacy etc. The book provides a comprehensive overview on a rapidly developing area of technology"--
