Professional Drones for Surveying

Fixar UAV Solutions

Using drones, or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), for surveying has become standard in many industries, including mining, oil and gas, road and building construction, and many others. LIDAR and photogrammetry data gathered by drones can construct both 2D and 3D orthomosaic maps, which can have multiple applications for a surveyor’s needs, including slope monitoring and analysis, volumetric measures, urban planning, and much more.

 

Drone Surveying is Fast and Accurate

A UAV outfitted with the right equipment can collect survey data faster and more accurately than any other prior method. Because of their size and versatility, a drone can be maneuvered into spaces that would otherwise be inaccessible, as well as flying at a far lower altitude than manned aircraft and gathering data from angles impossible to get by other means.

 

Drone Surveying is Efficient and Precise

With geographical information system (GIS) data from drones, a surveyor’s work has become a lot easier. Analyzing a slope for drainage and strength when planning road construction or a mining or quarrying operation becomes far easier. A surveyor or engineer can use the information gathered from the drone to precisely plan out their project and use further drone data collection to make sure that small changes in terrain are taken into account as the project progresses. Using Building Information Modeling (BIM), surveyors and engineers can also overlay plans onto drone-generated maps, projecting what a completed project would look like on the surveyed terrain.

Drone Surveying is Versatile

Urban and city planners can use drone survey data, too. Traffic patterns can be analyzed and monitored, making decisions about zoning, transportation, and traffic flow easy to make accurately. Engineers can also use BIM to plan out bridges, overpasses, dams, and other infrastructure onto drone-surveyed maps.

 

Why Use FIXAR for Surveying?

FIXAR 007’s range, speed, onboard payload and versatility make it an easy choice for drone surveying. With a top speed of 120 km/h and a cruising speed of 72 km/h, FIXAR drones can gather fast and accurate data through its LIDAR capabilities and photogrammetric equipment. And with a range of 60 kilometers, FIXAR 007 can cover a lot of ground at once. The xGroundControl software platform allows you to map out routes and set autopilot mode, so that you have precise control over the drone at all times and quality assurance over the data it provides you.
