How to use the 3Dsurvey RTK Videogrammetry as a powerful tool for documenting and tracking construction progress

How much do you know about 3Dsurvey RTK Videogrammetry feature? 💡 Do you know it allows you to capture high-resolution videos of construction sites with a phone and a simple RTK device? 

It’s useful for:

  • monitoring progress
  • identifying potential issues
  • documenting the site over time
  • creating 3D models and maps of the site
  • easy-to-use project management control

The 3Dsurvey RTK Videogrammetry feature is extremely useful in many areas of Land Surveying, Construction, and similar industries (even Telecommunications, Utilities,…).

By using the 3Dsurvey RTK Videogrammetry feature, you only need a phone, mobile RTK device and any person to take a video of a site, which does not require any training whatsoever and it is also much faster than taking photos or using any other tools to collect the data. 📱

The data that is acquired by only filming the video of the site, surveyors or your in-house experts can process the data for example once a week or month in order to understand the progress of the project and to document all the details of the project using either 3D models, CAD lines or similar. The result could be an accurate and properly geo-positioned 3D model of the sewer, with all the accurate measurements, which can later be used either for troubleshooting. By using the 3Dsurvey RTK Videogrammetry feature you are getting the information that will help you improve accuracy, efficiency, and productivity and give you the power to keep complete control over the projects.

  • 4 years of traditional land surveying experience
  • 8+ years of experience in aerial photogrammetry
  • 300+ drone photogrammetry projects

Vid has always been fascinated with technology and its potential in making our lives easier.

Having joined our team as a student, he has dedicated himself to research and development, and has since more than earned his current position of technical director.

I’ve always been a little obsessed with the prospect of doing things smarter … and nothing pleases me more than finding new, better, and faster ways of doing my job.

In that sense, transitioning from traditional surveying methods to modern aerial photogrammetry was a completely natural and logical progression. And not just for Vid, but for our whole team.

There are just so many moving parts you have to take into account … I mean, it’s not just about going out into the field, taking some measurements, and then simply finishing up with the job.

There’s planning, safety concerns, accuracy, time spent in the field, gear, resources, teamwork, not to mention reaching your business goals. And there are ways of optimising those processes.

There are better tools, plans, and techniques. And if a more efficient and productive way is possible, wouldn’t you take it?

Optimal control over your workflows and processes, better measuring accuracy, and significant improvements in productivity are just some of the perks to be gained in terms of generally upgrading the way we survey.

Today, we can safely reach and measure what used to be almost unreachable. We can complete more projects in less time. We can do so much more without even being in the field. There’s so much potential to be taken advantage of.

Change is only scary if it’s for the worse. As long as it benefits us, we should strive towards it. And if I can contribute to helping my surveying colleagues work smarter, and achieve their goals a little faster, while even earning them some extra free time to top it all off … I’ll just do my best!
