Drone surveying and mapping is the art of capturing aerial data with an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), most commonly known as drone. It is an effective tool with a lot of uses cases in the construction industry, from monitoring progress to spotting mistakes or inaccuracies in plans and surveys. 

Drones use data from the Geographic Information Systems (GSI) with the purpose of visualizing and mapping out locations.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Frequent questions and answers about drone mapping and surveying in Alabama.

    What is drone mapping?

    Drone mapping is a type of land survey that collects data using an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), also known as drone, for the development of  projects. It enables the collection of raw data in a way that’s quicker, faster, and more precise compared to traditional methods.

    How does a drone survey work?

    A drone survey works by photographing the ground multiple times using downward-facing sensors with multispectral and RGB cameras in order to capture images. The drone will photograph the land from different perspectives and angles, tagging them with the exact coordinates so that all images can be later stitched together accurately.

    What does a drone surveyor do?

    A drone surveyor operates and guides the drone in order to obtain accurate 3D coordinates and aerial images that will later be analyzed for the correct execution of construction projects.

    How accurate are drones for surveying?

    Drone surveying and mapping solutions can elaborate surveys with different degrees of accuracy depending on the requirements that a project has.
