Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
CCMEO scientists tested the mapping capability of a small DJI Phantom 3 Professional drone/UAV at the Mer Bleue wetland in Ottawa. We flew the Phantom 3 on 17 dates from April to December 2016 and a larger drone was also flown on May 12, 2016. We showed that the small drone has large potential for mapping elevation and vegetation structure once references points are used to improve the drone GPS precision.
