Abstract. Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) are increasingly used in different applications, including 3D urban modelling, cadastral mapping, urban planning, GIS information system and other fields because of their advantages. As a consequence, UAS equipment is constantly developed to provide more accurate results in a more reliable mode. This paper aims to evaluate the performances of a low-cost UAS system, namely DJI Phantom 4 Pro v2 equipped with a TeoKIT GNSS PPK (post-processing kinematic) module for cadastral mapping purposes. Two fights (oblique and nadir) over a residential area at 60 m height were performed and some 100 ground points were used to derive RMSE accuracies. Comparison between GNSS-aided with PPK processing and indirect georeferencing processes are performed. Given a mobile laser scanner (MLS) point cloud as ground truth, comparison with UAS point clouds and manually digitized features are also performed and reported.
