USING DRONES FOR SAFER SURVEY AND MAPPING WORK ON TRANSPORTATION CORRIDORS

We recently tested our Structure from Motion (SfM) and Virtual Surveying approach in a road survey scenario. The only significant manual work in the field was to survey ground control and check points. Image acquisition (with a Pixhawk equipped quad copter and a 24Mp camera) as well as SfM processsing was a highly automated exercise that quickly produced BIG data. To extract the essential data, Virtual Survey Tools was used to bring conventional field work to the safe and comfortable office environment.

I found the video on your website, 'Off to the Pastures', to be a very effective presentation tool, focusing on useful information that can be gained from a fixed-wing or multirotor.

Very nice work!

When you refer to Virtual Survey Tools, are you speaking of Virtual Surveyor?

@RPM - yes.
