The above video shows the real-time manipulation of a 2D orthomosaic or map of a 7-acre construction site. The overlapping, geo-referenced nature of the drone-based imagery used to create the map allows project managers, superintendents and others to take accurate linear, surface area or volumetric measurements, track assets, take inventory and document subcontractor progress. This saves general contractors both time and money over traditional site visits and provides very thorough time-stamped documentation of construction progress.
Impress Clients, Better Manage Projects and Save Time & Money
For builders, the case for return on investment is straightforward. Drones are cheaper to fly than manned aircraft and faster than human surveyors, and they collect data far more frequently than either, letting construction workers track a site’s progress with a degree of accuracy previously unknown in the industry. With the right computing tools, builders can turn sensor data into 3D structural models, topographical maps, and volumetric measurements (useful for monitoring stockpiles of costly resources like sand and gravel). Collectively, that intelligence allows construction companies to more efficiently deploy resources around a job site, minimize potential issues, trim costs, and limit delays.

Applications throughout The Construction Lifecycle
Architectural pre-visuals provide the architecture, engineering and construction industry with the tools they need in order to more effectively communicate everything from key concepts, to dimensional spaces and compelling aesthetics. The integration of UAV based, engineering-grade, aerial imagery with traditional renderings, illustrations and animations will become the gold standard in visual tools used to help win over clients, partners and investors alike.
