When a great earthquake occurs in urban areas, it is important to gather information of disaster area as soon as possible. An aerorobot is effective in gathering information because it can fly over the dameged area quickly and collect wide area information efficiently. With autonomous flight control and stereo camera, the system which collects 3-dimentional geographical feature information automatically is developed and illustrative experimental results are shown in this paper.
