Recently, UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) is used in a variety of fields such as the military service, fire prevention, traffic
supervision, mapping, and etc. The increased demand for UAVs is typically attributed to the low manufacturing and operational
costs, flexibility of the platforms to accommodate the consumer’s particular needs and the elimination of the risk to pilots’ lives in
difficult missions. But, in South Korea, UAV might be first introduced to military service, and is still in its infancy, just being
available for construction site monitoring, landscape photographing, spraying agricultural chemicals, broadcasting fields.
This study presents the background and the aim of flood mapping, and presents the possibility analysis of how to use UAV
effectively for flooding area. And author tries to overlap UAV image with the flooding area trace surveyed by ground surveys. As a
result, it is expected that UAV photogrammetry will contributes to investigating the flooded area by providing images, which is
describing the flooded area in near real-time and also making a decision like paying compensation.
