Drone mapping, a cutting-edge technique within the realm of geospatial technology, employs unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) equipped with specialized sensors and cameras to capture high-resolution imagery and data over vast areas. These drones are capable of collecting a wealth of information, such as aerial photos, LiDAR scans, and thermal imagery, which is instrumental in creating detailed 2D and 3D maps of diverse landscapes and structures.
Aerial survey allows for rapid data acquisition, cost savings, and enhanced safety compared to traditional surveying and mapping methods.
When time is critical in preserving evidence, photogrammetry has been an essential tool for disaster prevention and analysis for the public safety and services sector. Traditional methods dictate a longer inspection timeline with a high risk of site disturbance.
For large civil construction projects, such as mining and land development, there are two traditional methods to accurately identify and calculate volumes of material; counting trucks full of material or sending a surveyor to a dangerous area to access and measure stockpiles. Aerial photogrammetry can remove the safety risk out of the equation, all while accurately calculating the volume of material on a given project with excellent repeatability and reproducibilitys you provide.
