Abstract

The research carried out in the framework of the forest fund public property of the state, uses the advantages of drones in obtaining the data and information required for the forest area concerned in the construction of the forests in Romania. Data and information obtained as a result of the flight with drones-UAV chosen in three locations under distinct geomorphological characteristics, contribute to the methodology of work with the instruments flight without pilot (drones) in the forestry field. The products obtained by processing images acquired airlines with flight without pilot (drones): the cloud of points and 3Dmesh, the digital model of the surface (DSM) and orthophotomaps, can contribute to the completion of the landscapedatabase supplied to the development of forestry management plan. At the same time, the orthophotomap obtained from aerial image processing taken with unmanned aircraft (drones) contributes to the process of updating the cartographic basis required for forest planning. Preliminary analysis of the orthofotomaps obtained, regarding the elements of interest for the forest vegetation can assist the activity of forestry structures and public authority in the field, in sustainable forest management by: ensure the integrity of the forest fund and permanence of the forest, ensure the adequacy of the legal continuity, institutional and operational in the forest management, the identification of the necessary work to prevent and control pests and diseases of the forest, the monitoring of the areas affected by destabilizing factors.
