Unmanned aerial system integration for monitoring and management of landslide: A case of Dominican Republic
AbstractThe Unmanned Aerial System (UAS), Aerial Robot or Drone has been a multi-purpose tool for professionals, especially for its unknown versatile applications and regardless of its challenges in adoption. In the built environment and the current global situation, the topic of disaster management has grabbed attention from the scientific community, raising questions of cyberspace linking the COVID-19. As a result, the case study shows how UAS is used to evaluate the landslide provoked as cascading effect of a bridge site construction and the digital data required to feed in 2D and 3D a database of urban planning development. The findings reveal that the application of UAS reduced physical inspections, allowed professionals to obtain inaccessible data, and helped to overview the site conditions identifying the cause of the phenomenon. A safety design factor of the critical building of the school in the community to mitigate the landslide hazards at Santa Maria, Dominican Republic was recommended. Future works in 360°evaluation for similar cases in construction are recommended.
