Benefits of site monitoring with a UAV and 3Dsurvey software
Construction sites and, especially, demolition sites are often challenging environments for surveyors. Nevertheless, effective project management and financial control depend on accurate and timely information about the volumes of materials which have been placed, relocated and removed. Conventional surveys to obtain this information are slow, labour intensive, expose surveyors to danger and can disrupt site operations. Photogrammetry using an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV or drone) and the 3Dsurvey software suite offers an efficient, cheaper and safer alternative.
