M2M is an H2020 project funded by the European Commission, through the Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME) on the specific call 'SMEInst-04-2016-2017' under the grant agreement number 762692.
The goal of M2M ("mapKITE to market") is to conduct a market analysis to introduce mapKITE into the market. MapKITE is a new mobile tandem, terrestrial and aerial, geodata acquisition and orientation/calibration system and method that combines an aerial unmanned (drone) and a land mobile mapping system. In a mapKITE mission, the mapping drone follows the mapping land vehicle by means of a stream of waypoints generated in the vehicle and transmitted to the drone. The land vehicle carries metric targets to materialize accurate kinematic ground control points. In the mission, inertial, GNSS, odometric and imaging data are recorded. In post-processing, these data are combined in a new way for accurate georeferencing purposes.
