Drones in Construction: Workflows That Benefit from Drone Data
The demand for drone technology in the construction industry is increasing over the last few years. However we discovered that not every construction site and not every project stage can use drone data to its full potential. In this article we defined some real construction workflows that can be improved with drones and Propeller.
Drones Changing The Game For Topographic Surveying
Civil contractors are among the earliest adopters of drone technology, and they admit that drone-captured data has given them a quicker, easier and safer way to produce digital terrain models and aerial sitemaps than the methods they used before.
“Being able to produce and share centimetre-accurate mapping that’s rivaling GPS topo survey is pretty unique and awesome. Propeller's software facilitates more fluid communication as now we’re all literally working on the same page with the same reference information.”Ray Penner Project Co-ordinator/UAV Operations Manager at Scheffer Andrew Ltd.
“As far as earthwork analytics, Propeller beats the competition by miles. Nobody comes even close.”Hamzah Shanbari Construction Technology & Innovation Manager at Haskell
