Drone Survey

Drones are a more efficient and cost effective way of surveying and are becoming an industry standard as more and more companies are adopting this technology for smarter service delivery. The demand for Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) has increased for high-quality aerial data as the price of drones has drastically declined. Drone surveying has huge potential in numerous sectors like mines, forest, infrastructure, inspection, agriculture, disaster management, public safety and real estate. Drones are a convenient choice as they make it easy to collect high-resolution images and data from hard-to-reach areas and in no time.
Drone Survey and Mapping

Advantages of Drone survey

  • Accessing the hard-to-reach areas: Drones can gather hi-res image of the areas where it requires heavy machinery to inspect in the tradition way
  • Safety: Surveillance crew are very susceptible to safety hazards as they have to inspect tough terrains which might be life threatening. Drones are build to get a closer view of the areas which are inaccessible like the underside of bridges, areal view of mines, rivers, rail lines, rocky terrains etc.
  • Improved Data collection: Due to its compact size, drones can get closer to survey points and can collect more data, high resolution images better than helicopters and aeroplanes
  • Cost effectiveness: Surveys can be performed without shutting down operations which in-turn lowers the cost by avoiding loss of productivity
  • Time Saving: To map a plot of 100 acres, a surveyor team can take upto 2 months or so, but a drone can perform the same task in about an hour
  • Faster Data capture: Data capture is up to 30 times more faster than traditional survey method
  • Autonomous: Currently drones operates autonomously in certain conditions but do need an operator to overview and monitor its progress. Drone uses proprietary commercial grade flight control to automate flight surveillance.
  • Accuracy: Drones can attain an accuracy of about 2- 3 cm in survey data enabled by unique onboard Post-Processing Kinematic GPS technology
  • Large area coverage: Drones can survey large hectors of land in a single flight and can take better resolution images than satellite imagery
  • Light weight and portable: Most drones used for surveillance are light weight, around 4 kgs. Allows easy and quick deployment in tough terrains with limited open area.
  • Mutli-operational: Due to its compact size drones have a wide range of applications such as Topography mapping & surveying, Industrial inspections, Real estate photography, Crop monitoring, Agriculture etc.
