Unmanned aerial systems (UAS) are revolutionizing how remote sensing activities are undertaken in geography and beyond. With increased spatial and temporal resolution, new UAS methods and techniques are rapidly being implemented in a variety of fields and disciplines to improve our understanding of the earth system. However, the uncertainties surrounding data capture also create challenges for traditional digital image processing workflows. These challenges require a reexamination of existing workflows to develop methodological approaches suitable to UAS captured datasets.
