Abstract. Unmanned air vehicle systems (UAVSs), which are presently defined as effective measuring instruments, can be used for measurements and evaluation studies in fields. Furthermore, UAVs are effective tools that can produce high-precision and resolution data for use in geographic information system-based work. This study examined a multicopter (hexacopter) as an air platform to seek opportunity in generating DSM with high resolution. Flights were performed in Kahramanmaras Sutcu Imam University Campus area in Turkey. Pre-assessment of field works, mission, tests and installation were prepared by using a Laptop with an adaptive ground control station. Hand remote controller unit was also linked and activated during flight to interfere with emergency situations. Canon model IXSUS 160 was preferred as sensor. As a result of this study, as mentioned previous studies, .The orthophotos can be produced by RGB (Red-green-blue) images obtained with UAV, herewith information on terrain topography, land cover and soil erosion can be evaluated.
