    Abstract: Under certain weather conditions, avalanches can occur because of snow cover on a steep slope. Such avalanches can reach snow fences that are arranged as countermeasures. Furthermore, traffic is completely blocked when fences collapse and snow falls on a road. Therefore, prediction of avalanche occurrence is important, but such predictions are cons... Show More

    Abstract: The method of map production by using UAV photogrammetry is widely-used in Turkey and World in recent years. With the developing technology, the capabilities of UAV platforms increase in parallel with the scale of projects, which are done by using UAVs, almost reaches to enough magnitude in order to compete with manned aircraft platforms. In the ar... Show More
