Drone Data Collection Software
Drone data collection software makes construction surveying—and the data processing that follows—fast, accurate, and simple.
collection — fast, accurate, simple
Drone technology is literally changing the landscape of earthwork.
Propeller has paired the best in drone data collection software and hardware to create a reliable, fully integrated solution for surveying your worksite—minus the hassle, risk, and complication of traditional workflows.Check out Propeller PPK
Drones collect detailed information on worksites from thousands of 2D aerial photos. Onboard GPS units, combined with the reliability of post-processed data, deliver spatial accuracy up to 1/10 foot (3 cm).Learn more about accuracy
No need for complex surveying equipment or manual ground control. Simply place a single AeroPoint (Propeller’s “smart” ground control point) on-site, and Propeller takes care of the rest.More about AeroPoints
With Propeller’s streamlined PPK processing solution, drone data uploads to the Propeller Platform automatically. Within hours, you’ll have an easy-to-share 3D site model that provides accurate stockpile measurements, road-grade checks, design conformance checks, and volumetrics.Explore the Propeller Platform

How it works
How are drones used for survey data collection?
Drones are unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), meaning a human pilot operates them while they’re firmly on the ground. In construction, aggregates, mining, waste management, and other forms of earthwork, drones have become a vital tool for capturing image data efficiently and safely. Using the science of photogrammetry, geotagged images are converted to highly accurate 3D maps of a worksite, useful in tracking and measuring every stage of a project.
