SURVEYING AND MAPPING
Today the use of commercial drones or UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) for surveying and Mapping has become common practice. Drones capture data that can be used in a wide-variety of mapping applications: ... LiDAR mapping – capturing precise digital representation of objects, buildings, and the ground.
Land Surveying is an incredibly challenging and complex job as the world continues to meet problems of land scarcity and a growing population.Land Surveyors have long since mapped territories utilizing a range of traditional methods and tools such as manned flights, satellite data, robotic total stations, Global Positioning System (GPS) receivers, retroreflectors, 3D scanners, handheld tablets, digital levels, subsurface locators, Geographic Information System (GIS), and surveying software.
An unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), or drone as it is otherwise known, is an aircraft without a human pilot aboard. A drone survey involves using UAVs to survey land across a variety of industries, from mining to construction to engineering. Piloted by remote, these small, ultra-light aircraft are designed to collect detailed survey information while transmitting that data back to head office. This data can be used to create highly accurate maps and provide valuable information to those considering major projects on large areas of land.
Drone technology has dramatically changed the land surveying industry and drones have become increasingly popular in surveying projects as they allow for the swift, accurate collection of data, allowing for safe, efficient assessments that don’t incur the time or energy expenses required by human intervention.
Today the use of commercial drones or UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) for Surveying and Mapping has become common practice. Drones capture data that can be used in a wide-variety of mapping applications:
Automated Mapping – by establishing ground control points UAVs are able to plan a flight path allowing the drone to fly autonomously.
Cadastral Surveying – establishing property boundaries consisting of land and building is valuable information for real estate. UAV generated imagery, with low acquisition data costs, will help to identify boundaries and property assets.
LiDAR Mapping – capturing precise digital representation of objects, buildings, and the ground. Traditional LiDAR units need to be mounted onto manned vehicles due to the heavy weight. LiDAR drone solutions are cost effective when compared to mobile mapping systems.
Volumetric Calculations – UAVs are excellent tools for volumetric applications resulting in greater reference points, safer data collection methods and accurate readings.
Below is a list of the benefits of the usage of unmanned aerial vehicles for surveying and mapping.
Accurate Data Collection
Drones can collect all kinds of data, including photography, LIDAR, and video, and instantly transmit that data anywhere in the world or use it to create highly detailed maps in a relatively short amount of time.
Reductions in Cost And Time
Collecting land data using traditional surveying methods has been to date one of the most time-consuming elements for many projects. The advancement of drone technology is changing the nature of a land surveyors role, effectively allowing them to accomplish more in less time.
While a drone-driven survey might seem expensive, the opposite is true. Drone technology allows for powerful and efficient work, allowing companies to redirect their budgets away from expensive in-person mapping and reporting to a much wider online collection and distribution of data.
View Real-Time Spatial Data
The immediate future will see land surveyors become experts at analysing spatial data in the field.The advancement of UAV technology is providing surveyors with the opportunity to capture remotely-sensed, real-time geospatial data. This, in turn, is helping to generate essential data for GIS applications.
The hi-tech cameras and recording equipment used by drones mean that you can document every stage of your project’s progress, from start to finish. These videos can be used as part of guided demonstrations and as records of the surveys carried out during a project over time. At the same time, the maps generated by a drone survey can be used throughout your project to determine the feasibility of each step.
Safe and Speedy Data Collection
Unmanned aerial systems allow surveyors to deploy rapidly and map just about anywhere, this is especially effective when it comes to remote and rural areas. This method is helping to limit the environmental risks to surveyors associated with mapping out unknown areas.
On-foot surveying requires manpower, long travel hours, and the use of unwieldy surveying equipment. This all means extra time out in the field. In contrast, a drone survey can be completed swiftly and accurately in a fraction of the time. With a drone, you can also schedule ad hoc flights for your site (or an area of your site) to gain up-to-date information as often as required.
Mining and engineering projects, as well as infrastructure inspections, carry with them elevated levels of risk. While surveys are essential to ensure the safety of certain environments, surveying by foot can be risky, especially in difficult-to-access areas. The speed and precision of drones as well as the software used to collect and analyse the collected data allow for a safe, efficient collection process, at a fraction of the cost and time required by traditional surveying methods.
