By deploying a drone over a specific site we are able to survey various subjects. We can provide detailed measurements of a property, road system, quarries, and more. Utilizing the drone we drastically reduce the time of data collection to produce accurate surveys of a site. Our equipment uses geo-referenced aerial images of the site allowing us to compile a detailed image based map.
Once the images and geo-reference data are collected by drone software allows us to build topographic maps from the data. We can compile this data into a Digital Terrain Model which allows for accurate work planning.
After the maps are compiled we can create break lines, reference points, digital elevation models, and contour lines. Midwest Aero Technologies can also calculate volumes of various stockpiles and objects on site.
We can also utilize drones to survey systems for road planning and paving. Images of existing road systems can be captured by drone and compiled into an orthomosaic. Once the orthomosaic is compiled we can utilize the geo-referenced data to build an image based survey of the site. This can aid in determining what areas need to be paved and determine which areas of the road may need leveling.
