Section-1: Location and Measurements

October-31, 2021 @ 12:30pm 

This section contains the most recent georeferenced orthomosaic map and colorized digital elevation map (DEM), created from 99 geotagged images. The two maps can be toggled by clicking the icon in upper right corner. The relative map resolution is 2″ horizontal and 6″ vertical.  Data are obtained from an altitude of 200-ft (AGL).

The map allows distance, area and volumetric measurements. To measure, click icons on left and draw line or polygon  around the area to be measured (left click to see the measured value). Measurements are used to verify earthwork progress and to compare with as-built specifications. Click to Expand

Section-2: Site Overview

Georeferenced orthomosaic maps are obtained periodically (weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly). These maps are collected and overlaid to provide overview of site progression. These maps are combined with object identification technology to count assets and document location.

Section-3: Still Photos

Flight missions are tailored to collect photos of specific high-interest areas of the site. Identical missions are flown periodically to show details of site progression. These images provide detailed site visuals for building inspection and site safety documentation.

Section-4: Video

Flight missions are tailored to provide ultra-high resolution 4K video of the site from a variety of perspectives. Identical missions are flown periodically to show details of site progression.  Videos are valuable for communication with stakeholders and marketing the project.

Section-5: 3-Dimensional View

Images and videos are combined to generate detailed 3-dimensional rendering of the site. 3-dimensional visualization provides detailed structural insights to detect deviation from construction specifications by comparing with engineering and architectural designs.

A low resolution version of the 3-dimensional site model is shown as as an example. Let us know if you would like a full resolution 3-D rendering.
