Track. Map. Measure. Everything.
Propeller is a cloud-based data visualization and analytics platform. No software to install, just accurate 3D site surveys.
Measurable 3D site surveys
View your entire site with a 3D model so realistic you can use it for virtual walkthroughs. Our earthworks software streamlines your stockpile measurements, road-grade checks, design conformance checks, and volumetrics.
Interactive, visual timeline of your site
Visually assess how your site is doing today or over its lifetime in the timeline slider. Upload design surfaces or linework to see how you’re faring against the final grade with easy-to-understand single-point, cross-section, and surface-to-surface comparisons.
Easier access to more frequent survey data
Composite Surveys make it possible to fly and upload small, active sections of your site and then merge them with other surveys to form a more holistic view of your worksite. Stitching multiple surveys together removes the need to map your entire site every time, which in turn, saves you hours of work out on site.
Quick and easy terrain cleanups
Streamline your survey data QA by cleaning up your terrain to remove inaccuracies and obstructions, so you can be confident in your quantities. Easily maintain accuracy and consistency by managing who can make edits, and track changes as they happen.
Verifiable data quality with processing reports
Know your data is accurate thanks to the processing reports, filtering analysis, checkpoint verification that come with every dataset. Advanced algorithms process your data and analyze its quality. If you have any issues, our expert Data Success team is available to provide totally remote support, 24/7.
Support for lidar with easy Point Cloud Upload
Integrate Propeller into your existing workflows with drag-and-drop upload for preprocessed lidar data. View point clouds as 3D terrains. Measure, track, and share quantities and progress with your team—no separate license required.
One-click reporting and sharing
Get your people the data they need, right on their device, with easy and secure digital sharing. Downloadable PDF and CSV reports show breakdowns of every measurement—from stockpile volumes to remaining airspace to cross-section comparisons. Each includes a timestamp and direct-to-measurement hyperlinks for simple collaboration
Cloud-processed, carefully QA’d data
Propeller takes care of complex data processing on our servers, so it doesn’t monopolize yours. With our strict QA process, your images, checkpoints, and design uploads are rendered accurately every time. Whether you’re one site or 50, Propeller is ready to process your data.
"We have used about every mapping service in the aerial industry and ease of use as well as customer support is by far the factors that set Propeller apart from all the other services we have tried."Josh May Founder at Autonomous Flight Technologies
“An existing client that runs a large surveying company was so impressed with the ease of use and the visual data available along with the downloads that they now insist I use Propeller as default on work that I do for them.”Simon Stickland Director at Dragons Eye Filming
