n a recent webinar with Virtuosity, a Bentley Company, Eye-bot discusses the advantages of drone photogrammetry over conventional surveying. Dakota Campbell, Geospatial Analyst at Eye-bot Aerial Solutions presented how Eye-bot successfully generated topographic and CAD deliverables with survey-grade accuracy of an unsafe and inaccessible embankment.
Eye-Bot demonstrates how the use of technology and survey-grade data deliverables provided NewFields, an environmental, engineering, and construction management firm, with the information they needed to calculate approximately seventy-five individual containment volumes. Utilizing Eye-bot’s advanced proprietary acquisition methods and data processing, analysis was performed using millions of data points versus conventional survey methods where only a minimum number of points was collected within each designated area.
Drones are a great platform, or tool, for collecting large amounts of high-quality data. But there are many ways drone data collection services can collect and package that data from video, photographs, thermography, multispectral maps, and photogrammetry to 3D reality models and point clouds.
Drone Data is king. Employing predictive analytics will enable safety and operations personnel to target their efforts as opposed to general inspections. This will not obsolete humans; rather, this will generate both cost savings and efficiency gains by targeting the efforts of these professionals
