Prepared for Flight's Jason Wade launches Executive Aerial Services to strategically expand our capabilities to provide aerial photography, 2D/3D image and point-cloud creation and 3D model rendering.
The real estate, construction and inspection industries greatly benefit from drone mapping. Maps are used to regularly update clients in these industries on the progress of their projects, analyze locations for property expansion, or even generate 3D models of construction sites. Aerial maps are useful for aiding in the sale of land. For those considering buying large areas of real estate, an up-to-date aerial map can be of considerable value. These maps help managers obtain the “big picture” and assist in strategic decision making. Further, we obtain a highly accurate map with photogrammetry that can easily be turned into a 3D topographic map with contour data. Drone pilots primarily use cameras to visually inspect equipment, but photogrammetry can also assist in inspection. Finally, when disaster strikes, quick and accurate information is vital for emergency management to effectively respond, especially when the disaster covers a large area. Using drone photogrammetry, officials can determine the most damaged areas of a disaster (think flood or hurricane). With this data, they can effectively distribute their resources for a timely response.
