Drone Technology for New Age Infrastructure Planning

Mapping spatial spread with a reasonable accuracy is still a challenge in areas which are not easily accessible and at times dangerous, like wetlands, mines or forests. Traditional surveying techniques like GPS or optical surveying instruments, consume a lot of time and manpower as the surveyor needs to physically reach the point for which the data has to be collected. Hi-Res cameras, storage facilities & improved computing technology have enabled drones to collect, process and interpret high-resolution imagery easily. Drones used for photogrammetry take sideways, forward and zone overlapped series of pictures, which…continue reading →
