Steps to reproduce

The 2005 high-resolution GE Historical Images of the study area were extracted at optimal zoom level using the Elshayal Smart GIS software. Next, the 2019 UAV images of the study area were acquired using the DJI Mavic 2 Pro at a low flying height (61 m) to achieve a high resolution. Furthermore, 9 GCPs were measured using Hi-target RTK. Subsequently, the UAV images were processed to generate an Orthomosaic of the area. Lastly, both images were compared to quantify the urban development in the area.
