Drones have revolutionized the aerial surveying industry by providing a platform that is operated remotely. This means that cost of fuel and hiring a pilot are eliminated making the technology cost effective. In addition, aerial images captured by drones are of high quality due to the possibility of flying at low altitudes.
The technology has also made asset and utility inspection affordable and safe. Now you can perform asset and utility inspection as often as required without worrying about huge costs and time investment.
Application areas include:
- Volume calculations of cut and fill for earthworks projects
- Assessment and utility inspection
- Flood planning
- Contour mapping and surface model generation
- Visualizing and measuring of coastal erosion
