SMALL DRONES + SMALL CAMERAS + STRUCTURE FROM MOTION + SMALL ENTERPRISES = MAPPING REVOLUTION

Posted on August 3, 2015 at 6:00am 2 Comments

Last week, in Naples, Fl., at the AGM of the Florida Surveying and Mapping Society (FSMS) our sister company drone2GIS Inc. showcased a cross section of it's leading edge drone derived geo-spatial products . Have a look at the video here: …

USING DRONES FOR SAFER SURVEY AND MAPPING WORK ON TRANSPORTATION CORRIDORS

Posted on June 18, 2015 at 4:52pm 4 Comments

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…

HOW ACCURATE ARE YOUR MAPS AND MODELS?

Posted on February 18, 2015 at 4:37pm 14 Comments

Making maps with the help of small UAVs seems to be easy enough. However, when geometric accuracy is critical, how do you determine and state the estimated accuracy of your mapping product? One way is to establish a test bed with a redundancy of accurately surveyed check points which are used as independent bench marks against which the map can be compared. In this…

Small Drones accelerate and improve stockpile reporting for mines and earth work supervision.

Not only are they the safest, quickest method of quickly taking a snapshot of an entire highly dynamic site, they significantly reduce surveying costs. Adding powerful structure from motion (SfM) software and virtual survey tools to the equation means no boots on the ground and no need for interrupting any operations.

An example of the new geo-spatial products and virtual surveying and planning tools which we can bring to the farmer's kitchen table today - safely, harmlessly and economically, over and over again. All thanks to small UAVs - the new personal mapping systems. Thanks to the tremendous contributions from the DIY Drone community, small enterprises can now offer new cost saving…
