Drone Topography Software
Drone topography software — the new must-have surveying tool
Introducing the new era of topographic surveying
Drone topography software is fast becoming a must-have in any surveyor or site manager’s toolkit. It allows you to create accurate 3D site maps, including contours and terrain, at a fraction of the time and cost of traditional survey methods.
With a drone, you can conduct topographic surveys with the same high level of accuracy you’ve come to expect from traditional methods—in just a fraction of the time. Early adopters have seen dramatic gains in efficiency, labor savings, and safety as they’ve incorporated drones into their surveying workflows.Check out the Propeller Platform
How it works
Richer datasets = better insights
Traditional topographic survey data is basically a set of linework. Drone survey data looks very different. It includes an orthophoto, contour map, digital terrain model, and dense point cloud. The result is a highly accurate (and highly visual) dataset that’s ripe for analysis and insight—meaning that you can spend less time processing data, and more time making big-picture decisions.
A shared viewpoint
Your entire team references the same (up-to-date) pool of georeferenced data, so no one has to make a one-off or subjective measurement that applies only to the task they’re working on at the moment. View your site as a cohesive whole as it changes day-to-day, and share the data with everyone who needs it.
Simple tools with instant results
Because measuring and processing datasets is so easy, stockpile volumes can be measured accurately in less than a minute. Make that seconds for haul road grades. Using a surface-to-surface comparison, site terrain can be viewed against design to easily see where material should be added or removed. Propeller’s drone topographic survey software doesn’t take hours to learn, either. Just point and click.
