Airborne technology developed rapidly in the last decade offering solutions for both data acquisition and surveillance purposes. The same technology can be used by no specialists for entertaining reasons or by governmental companies for security issues. However, there are several matters that the two will look for the acquisition characteristics and the data processing software. Nowadays as an alternative for airborne technology are used Unmanned Aerial Vehicles. An Unmanned Aerial Vehicle is a system composed by a number of subsystems which include the unmanned air vehicle (the aircraft), its payloads, the control station and communication sub-system [1]. Compared to classical equipment for spatial data acquirement which are time consuming and costly, these types of equipment are used for small scale areas and for mapping projects with low budget. In the geodetic field, data acquisition process for generating and imaging representative and accurate 3D model has permanently concerned researchers and practitioners. This paper is about creating environmental 3D models using a low-cost data acquisition methods or technology and high – class processing software.
