This PhD research aims to design and implement a method to facilitate land rights mapping through indirect surveying techniques from UAV data. It is based on the assumption that a large portion of cadastral boundaries is physically manifested through objects such as hedges, fences, stone walls, tree lines, roads, walkways or waterways. Those visible boundaries bear the potential to be extracted with methods from photogrammetry, remote sensing and computer vision. The automatically extracted outlines require further (legal) adjudication that allows incorporating local knowledge from a human operator. The method currently being designed and developed within this PhD research aims to provide a delineation approach that includes this automated extraction combined with an interactive delineation (Figure 1). This work is part of the Horizon 2020 program of the European Union (project its4land).
