Abstract. Most of consultation work only involves a small area, especially for slope mapping studies. The objective of this study is to evaluate the accuracy of slope mapping results from different altitudes at semi-undulated area and undulated area. Multi-rotor UAV is used as an instrument for data acquisition for this study. The images of slope were captured from five different altitudes in the same study area. All images were processed using photogrammetric software to produce digital elevation models and digital orthophoto. In this study, slope map from all different altitudes were identified and recorded for analysis purposes. It was found that the accuracy of slope is increase when altitude is increase. In conclusion, the condition of slope such as semi-undulated and undulated area did have an influence on the slope accuracy.
