WHAT IS UNMANNED AERIAL VEHICLE SURVEY
Aerial laser surveying also referred to as LiDAR (Light Detection And Ranging) is a technology that acquires 3D point group data (X, Y, and Z). Using a survey drone, it quickly covers large areas and transforms it into effective 3D models, Point Clouds, Orthomosaics, Topographical maps & Digital elevation models (DEM) to provide a record of the earth's surface that can be used to manage or interact with natural and built environments
Aerial surveys measure cut and fill volumes, perform as-built surveys and generate accurate 3D models for monitoring and managing critical infrastructure and assets. It provides a large number of measurements in order to produce a geometric representation of a building at any point. Modeling buildings enables the production of plans, models and thermal balances which help in monitoring and documenting the evolution of a structure. This is a key issue for better management of buildings.
The development of increasingly dense and complex urban areas requires intensive planning and therefore time-consuming and expensive data collection. Thanks to drones, urban planners can collect large amounts of up-to-date data in a short period of time and with far less staff. The images produced in this way allow planners to examine the existing social and environmental conditions of the sites and consider the impact of different scenarios.
Aerial images taken by drones greatly accelerate and simplify topographic surveys for land management and planning. This holds true for site scouting, allotment planning and design, as well as final construction of roads, buildings and utilities.
FORESTRY & AGRICULTURE
Aerial surveys can track land changes, monitor wildlife, conserve forests, identify species, and model glaciers without the need for low-resolution satellite imagery or costly manned aircraft.
