Equipped with volumetric mapping software, stock piles, material extraction pits, and spoil heaps are quickly and easily measured. This process is made possible through the creation of a digital surface model by which waste and material is then measured.
Drone Mapping Benefits
Lidar is another means by which complex measurements are taken to create maps and scale figures. A drone equipped with a laser measuring tool shoots beams at distant objects, and collects the reflected light with a sensor.
The drone’s survey capabilities are leveraged to define boundaries of construction site, as well as subdivide properties, record and acknowledge easements, and identify land massed and other impediments that affect land ownership.
The health and safety risks to employees can be reduced drastically by allowing drones to carry out most of the work, while managers view the footage from the safety of their office, whether real-time or recorded.
