The current practice of monitoring the rural-urban development in Malaysia is mainly based on conventional method that has limitations. This suggests that a modern technology, both hardware and software could be investigated to examine the application of drone technology and the appropriate systems namely Rural Grid System and Characteristics of Rural Malaysia System (CHARMs). An extensive literature review has been conducted to address the weaknesses of conventional method, the potential of drone technology in monitoring rural urban development, as well as the challenges of drone technology in term of limitation usage, pilot and auto pilot, and the rules and regulations. The finding shows that drone technology has its own strengths and weaknesses but its role in monitoring the rural urban development should be given priority. It is hoped that this paper can be a guideline for government agencies like local authorities, Department of Director General of Lands and Mines, and also private sector such as developer and investor who partake and apply modern monitoring through technological innovation notably in the land development process and site development progress.
