Abstract

A drone platform built by Korea Institute of Geoscience and Mineral Resources (KIGAM) is introduced. The platform consists of various drone systems developed at KIGAM for photogrammetry, remote exploration, physical exploration, field operation methods, a vehicle-based drone control center, as well as a drone data platform for data storage, sharing, analysis, and visualization of the acquired data. The performance of the drone platform is verified using results obtained with the various systems, which are tested individually and in various combined applications. Finally, the possibility of using the KIGAM drone platform for geological surveys and mineral resource exploration is discussed.
