AERIAL MAPPING SOLUTIONS
Data Collection / Mapping / Analysis
DETAILED MEASUREMENTS TO SAVE TIME & CUT COSTS
Industries in Construction, Mining, Land Management, Agriculture and Engineering can all benefit from obtaining aerial maps of their worksite. With different outputs from an aerial map, customers can review worksite progress, assess precise measurements, create 3D models... and so much more!
Traditional land surveying is timely and sometimes even dangerous
With a UAV, you can create an automated flight plan and map roughly 50-80 acres of land in just 20 minutes.

Increase Job Safety
Traditional survey methods involve climbing over large masses and piles to gather data. This method adds the possibility of a person falling or getting seriously injured. Other jobs involve working along busy roads with cars racing by. When you add winter weather and icy conditions into the mix, the likelihood of an injury increases. With a UAV, employees are no longer at risk of falling or getting injured. They can fly out to areas not easily accessible by foot and cover much more ground in a shorter time.
Using conventional surveying practices, 40 acres of land takes about one to two weeks to gather and process data. However with a UAV, it only takes about 15 minutes to cover that amount of land with an additional 2 hours of processing. Autonomous missions are quick to design and easy to deploy. This decreases time spent in the field and increases productivity.
In Spruce Pine, NC, Go Unmanned provided an aerial mapping demonstration at a feldspar mine. This video reviews what processing data looks like using Pix4D after flying.
Matt Mulhern explains the types of industrial customers who typically benefit from the use of a UAV - grading contractors and surveyors. UAVs offer a highly efficient way to reduce time and increase efficiency on a job site.
