Abstract. Recently, UAVs are being used in various fields such as photography, precision agriculture, remote monitoring, surveying, mapping, and disaster management. In particular, UAVs can acquire real-time data and access hard-to-reach areas, which is advantageous for rapid spatial information generation. Spatial information can be generated by mounting a camera on the UAV and performing the geocoding process of image data using the location/location information acquired from the GPS/INS sensor. The use of multiple GCPs during the geocoding process can increase the image position accuracy. However, since a lot of time is consumed for surveying, it is disadvantageous to be used in disaster fields that require urgent data generation. Therefore, in this study, fast geocoding process of UAV image using the minimum GCP is proposed. The results obtained through this process can be used as basic data for on-site monitoring and decision-making in disasters and emergencies.
