The geospatial (or surveying) industry is undergoing a revolution. Previously, it was total stations, then GPS, laser scanners and robotics. Now, surveying professionals are taking on another tool with great excitement – mapping drones. These drones boast quick data collection times, excellent positional accuracy, a safe operator experience and simply remarkable ROI.

Today, UAVs are considered the primary tool for safely capturing accurate aerial data quickly. Importantly, they can also create aerial maps and 360 degree virtual tours in real time, even before they’ve landed.

Survey specific drones deliver greater detail, higher map resolution and have the capacity to measure vital areas in centimetres, as opposed to metres. Taking advantage of mapping technology, surveyors can also create collaborative maps and 3D models.

In the field or in the office, GIS professionals can access and analyse geo-referenced aerial images and high-fidelity reconstructions of sites, allowing teams of professionals to make smart, efficient decisions.

How drones are changing traditional surveying
