I'm amazed at the amount of information extracted from overlapping photos and how that information helps you be more efficient and effective on projects today.
Where am I going and
how am I getting there?
My mission is to help engineering and construction companies realize cost savings utilizing UA on their projects. To help
- Project Managers
- Other Stakeholders
improve their workflows and visibility into a project. My goal is to partner with project stakeholders to lower project costs and increase productivity.
A high-tech UA intelligently snaps and collects photos that store centimeter-level location data of the picture. The embedded information is then used in post-processing to create highly accurate recreations of the covered area. These highly accurate representations are ideal as a base layer in project CAD files, project visualizations, and project measurements.
A picture is worth a
To be more precise, it is millions of calculations the Structure from Motion (SfM) software must perform to stitch together overlapping UA photos. But before getting to this point, we meet with clients to thoroughly understand project requirements. Then with a full understanding of the needs, a mission plan is prepared, which documents requirement understanding, a flight plan, FAA authorizations/waivers (if needed), vicinity map, flight area, insurance coverage, and other pertinent information. Upon plan sign-off, we execute the mission. The captured photos are then loaded into specialized software to generate
- Point clouds
- Elevation models
- 3D Models and
- Geographically corrected photos
The files are then made available to the client through a secure web site. We spend time with the client to ensure there is a mutual understanding of each file.
