HOW CAN DRONES HELP?
Today the use of commercial drones or UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) for land surveying has become common practice. Drones capture data that can be used in a wide-variety of mapping applications. They also provide significant advantages to traditional methods in the more challenging environment to arise today.
- Reduce Time Spent Collecting Data – Collecting land data using traditional surveying methods has been to date one of the most time-consuming elements for many projectsine Site Planning
- Survey Areas Quickly And Safely – Unmanned aerial systems allow surveyors to deploy rapidly and map just about anywhere, this is especially effective when it comes to remote and rural areas. This method is helping to limit the environmental risks to surveyors associated with mapping out unknown areas.
- View Real-Time Spatial Data – The immediate future will see land surveyors become experts at analyzing spatial data in the field.
