Surveying with Drones
By deploying a drone over a specific site we are able to survey various subjects. We can provide detailed measurements of a property, road system, quarries, and more. Utilizing the drone we drastically reduce the time of data collection to produce accurate surveys of a site. Our equipment uses geo-referenced aerial images of the site allowing us to compile a detailed image based map.
Once the images and geo-reference data are collected by drone software allows us to build topographic maps from the data. We can compile this data into a Digital Terrain Model which allows for accurate work planning.
After the maps are compiled we can create break lines, reference points, digital elevation models, and contour lines. We can also calculate volumes of various stockpiles and objects on site.
We can also utilize drones to survey systems for road planing and paving. Images of existing road systems can be captured by drone and compiled into an orthomosaic. Once the orthomosaic is compiled we can utilize the geo-referenced data to build a image based survey of the site. This can aid in determining what areas need to be paved and determine which areas of the road may need leveling.
Inventory Tracking with Drones
Various models of DJI drones are used to conduct inventory tracking. Traditionally it is difficult to keep track of stockpiles in various locations. Unless loads taken from the stockpile are carefully tracked through weight or other means of measurement it is difficult to assess how much of the stockpile remains. Utilizing a drone, camera, and software we are able to accurately and precisely determine the volume of a stockpile.
A drone is flown over and around the stockpile taking a series of images. The images are then taken back to the office and processed into a 3d point cloud of the stockpile. Utilizing various software we are able to complete a volumetric analysis of the stockpile to determine the volume of the material that is on site.
When scheduled to occur at specific time intervals site managers and inventory managers are able to have accurate and price knowledge of the amount of material the have in stock.
The same method can be applied to inventory construction materials on a job site. Utilizing images captured by drone and software to compile the data from the images so it can be analyzed we are able to track the usage of many building materials on a job site. We then can provide a report of the usage of these materials at a defined time interval.
