What deliverables can be achieved from using a drone for mapping?
There are several deliverables that can be achieved from using a drone for surveying:
Orthomosaic Maps: A high-resolution aerial image that is stitched together to form a single, detailed image of the survey area. This can be used to measure distances, calculate areas, and create accurate maps.
Digital Elevation Models (DEMs): A 3D model of the survey area that shows the elevation of the ground surface, which can be used for terrain analysis, volume calculations, and engineering design.
Point Clouds: A collection of data points that represent the precise location and elevation of objects in the survey area. This can be used to create 3D models and visualise the survey area from any angle.
Contour Maps: A map that shows the shape and elevation of the ground surface through contour lines. This can be used to analyse the slope of the land, identify potential drainage issues, and plan construction projects.
Thermal Imagery: A thermal image of the survey area that can be used to identify temperature differences and detect anomalies. This can be used for environmental assessments, monitoring of energy efficiency, and detection of leaks.
3D Models and Animations: A detailed 3D model of the survey area that can be used to create flythrough animations and virtual tours of the site.
Overall, using a drone for surveying can provide a range of deliverables that are accurate, detailed, and versatile, which can aid in decision-making and planning for a range of industries, including construction, mining, agriculture, and environmental management.
