Abstract

Remote-pilot aircraft are developing very rapidly and their potential in the various fields is often still to be fully investigated. The possibility to fly over the areas to be surveyed without the need to access the areas themselves makes the use of UAVs in some cases certainly preferable for safety reasons, as has already been tested for the management of postdisaster areas. Waste landfills are small sites where contact with waste itself must be limited and scientific experimentation on surveying this specific type of site is currently limited. The results obtained in other types of sites or infrastructures are not automatically applied to waste landfills due to the specific geometrical characteristics and texture of the images that can be obtained at sites like these. In this work, a test on an exhausted landfill has been carried out with attention to the accurate survey of a large number of control points necessary for a correct assessment of the final geometric accuracy. The use of ground control points and checkpoints has allowed the separate evaluation of precision and accuracy, which are very close to those obtained with the most common methods for these sites, such as laser scanning and total stations
