This paper presents a system to generate a 2D map using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) videos. The system can process the collected images for lens distortion, unstable flight, and image redundancy. The system is demonstrated using an UAV video captured on road construction site in Namyangju city, Korea. The experimental result is a high-resolution 2D map of which resolution is 6010 by 9465. This study is expected to help site managers understand site conditions and make a decision timely in diverse construction sites.
