Research Report: Mapping the Friendly Skies: How Drone Mapping is Changing the Construction Industry

Drones are becoming increasingly popular on construction sites for mapping and surveying. One reason for their popularity is that drones shorten the data-collection process significantly. Sites that may have taken days or weeks to survey by hand can be surveyed in a matter of hours using this aerial technology. The shortened process makes it financially feasible to survey a site multiple times throughout the construction process, giving users real-time information about progress and possible mistakes.

Additionally, the altitude drones can reach lets them easily collect information that ground surveying might miss and gives the user a much more holistic picture of their site.

But choosing what drone to use for a project or determining whether you should collect data via LiDAR or Photogrammetry isn’t immediately obvious. That’s where this research report can help.

In this research report, you’ll learn:
  • What drone is right for your objectives
  • The differences between and advantages of both LiDAR and photogrammetry data collection techniques
  • What data storage options you should consider when mapping with a drone
