Abstract: A startling three inches have been added to the relative sea level along the northeasternNorth Carolina coast since 1999. In the coming century and beyond, PasquotankCounty might be impacted by a rise in the sea level. Homes and livelihoods ofPasquotank County residents along numerous NCDOT-maintained public roads will bein danger as seal levels increase. The precision of flood danger maps depends on theavailability of scattered measurements of inundation contours. Unfortunately, aerialphotographs and satellite images are expensive, and the weather has a significantimpact on their temporal resolution. Due to its versatility and continuously decliningcosts, UAV-based remote sensing is becoming critical in use.• This poster demonstrates how UAS / UAV can deliver exact, current georeferenceddata regarding the location of North Carolina Department of Transportation roadways,bridges, river shorelines, tributaries, channel shape, and vegetation.• Incorporate LiDAR sensor to fixed-wing in addition to electric vertical take-off andlanding (eVTOL) aircraft that are capable of beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS).TIMELINE REFERENCESADVANTAGES
