Map making has been an important part of human history for communicating useful information to describes an environment. It is not difficult to envision that the process of constructing accurate maps is time consuming when done manually. Consequently, mobile robots have recently gained attention because of their ability to be automated through GPS, thereby giving their operator access to large and distant environments. However, GPS may not be available in all situations such as a forest. Therefore, this PhD research aims to create a swarm of unmanned aerial vehicles capable of mapping an outdoor environment without the need for GPS.
