UAV became the "new favorite" of surveying and mapping

Speaking of surveying and mapping, I think everyone will not be unfamiliar.

From engineering construction to land management, people are often inseparable from the help and assistance of surveying and mapping. In the past, traditional surveying and mapping relied mainly on manpower, not only to face a broad and complex geographical environment, but also to worry about the danger of disasters at any time. The mapping can be described as being intimidating, inefficient, and safe. However, with the development of the times and the emergence and application of various intelligent technologies, today's surveying and mapping has changed a lot.

 

UAV became the "new favorite" of surveying and mapping

 

One of the most obvious changes is the application of drones.

 

In recent years, with the rapid development of technologies such as flight control, navigation and communication, drones have gradually become the "new vents" for people's attention and application, from agricultural plant protection to power inspection, from film and television shooting to fire rescue, from emergency Communication to traffic inspections, we can see the drone's healthy posture.

 

With the gradual opening of the consumer market, its industrial-grade applications have continued to land, and the field of surveying and mapping has become a new airspace for its soaring. The UAV, which incorporates remote sensing technology, has been widely praised by people in the surveying and mapping industry for its remarkable advantages such as high flexibility, low cost and easy operation, as well as the ability to perform remote sensing surveying tasks efficiently and safely.

 

In China, including vertical and horizontal, zero degree, extreme flying, MMC, etc., there are already many companies involved in the layout and mapping of drones in China. They upgraded drone technology with surveying and mapping requirements and environmental changes, expanded and optimized drone design and functions, and promoted the vigorous application of surveying and mapping drones in national mapping, environmental monitoring, road planning, and emergency response.Today, MMC's surveying and mapping drones have made great progress in terms of battery life and anti-jamming capability. MMC's Grifflion M8 can use a variety of complex environments in surveying and mapping applications.

 

With the help of the upgrade and development of the surveying and mapping industry, drones have become the "new darling" of the surveying and mapping industry. According to industry experts, the current surveying and mapping drones are ushing in the sprint phase of large-scale commercialization. In the future, with the bottleneck of function, technology and design breakthrough, a broad and mature blue ocean market will be presented.

 

Data collection creates great value

 

So, how does the drone's specific value for mapping work?

 

As we all know, mapping is divided into two parts: measurement and drawing. The realization of these two parts is inseparable from an important foundation, that is, data. Whether it is surveying and mapping in disaster areas, urban planning or simple land mapping, it is necessary to map, deploy and make decisions based on data. The mapping of drones as a flexible, accurate and stable mapping platform is an excellent tool for data collection.

 

First of all, the drone can overcome the objective environmental constraints, and with the characteristics of fast flight speed, flexibility, adaptability, and stability, it can use sensors, cameras and other intelligent equipment from the air to obtain various geographies comprehensively, accurately and accurately. information. After that, data analysis and delivery of this information can provide important reference for drawing, layout and decision making.

 

Secondly, the integration of UAVs with artificial intelligence, Internet of Things, big data and other technologies can not only further enhance the speed and accuracy of data collection, analysis and transmission, but also give greater use of data information. For example, through data to help insurance companies to make damage claims, use data for disaster prevention and post-disaster construction, provide more business services through data, and so on.

 

All in all, the biggest help for drones in surveying and mapping is the collection, analysis and transmission of data. With this function, people can not only easily complete various surveying and mapping tasks, but also complete other related or extended tasks. As long as the data is transformed into services, the mapping of drones will release greater commercial value and thus have a broader market space.

  • OK .  lets get started.  Not sure how hands on, I'm looking for a long range fixed wing to work in sequenced pairs, on a 24/7 basis.  Yes surveillance.  Theres Parrot Disco  at  $1000  a piece , how does GriFlion M8  match up ?  Hard to believe 200 kM range with 6 motors on board, even with power cut to  4  in main flight.   Looks a capable bird.  What do U need to get a 4G navigation  link up (not in China , of course).   All  software is ready, except a timestore DB with issue alerts.  Fairly straight forward, as any vehicle detection or  personnel presence,  is alert.
