Accurate data acquisition is a necessity for many survey and inspection operations in high-danger areas that typically pose minimal chances of success. However necessary it is, getting the correct useful information can take a lot of time and resources that businesses may not have the luxury of having.
Drone technology can really help in taking care of the situation at a lower and more reasonable expense. Drones are equipped with state-of-the-art functions and features that allow them to support a variety of industries with their surveying and inspection requirements.
Here are some of the top features showcasing the versatility of drones when used for surveys and inspections.
Use For Different Operations
Drone surveys and inspections can be utilised by businesses in the construction, infrastructure, archaeology and mining sectors. Many of the operations carried-out by these companies are typically in high danger areas and would be extremely expensive to use traditional manpower.
There’s the prospect of injuries, land collapsing and even more dangers when the right precautions aren’t taken. Acquiring data through a drone inspection will ensure that companies are well-informed in their decision making and that the approved operations carried out will be safer.
Reach Inaccessible Areas using drones
Many companies may reject the use of traditional surveying techniques due to time constraints. It can be a lot of work to have people gear up to scope out the area and even get to the site, as the terrains can be rather dangerous.
Drones are manned from afar, and with the tech going through the air to survey the area it’s significantly faster with less hassle involved. Plus, companies wouldn’t have to worry about who to send and inaccessibility as drones are relatively compact in size.
Achieve Highly Accurate Data from Drone Surveys
Drones have plenty of inclusions that are high in quality, featuring industry-grade data sensors and cameras to collect adequate information for your company. The measurements are taken with precision as high-resolution images and video are viewed from a safe point.
These data points gathered through a drone survey and inspection are always relevant and far more detailed than what other methods can offer. Geological and thermal records are shown in real-time through the drone and can be recorded for future reference.
Continue Work with Ease
Surveying can often disrupt on-site workers and operations, which often translates into a hindrance for productivity and additional delays. However, since drones are in the air and don’t require any additional equipment on the part of our clients, on-ground work wouldn’t have to be paused for the survey and inspection. Both the assessment and regular operations can commence simultaneously without affecting each other.
Drones are an economical way to survey and inspect land and structures
Investing in a drone operator for surveying and inspecting areas is the most cost-effective option possible for many industries. As implied above, so much time and effort can be reduced from any regular methods of terrain examination. There’s also an upgrade in the data collected by your drone surveying, so there are guaranteed results and shifts for the expenses your company pays.
It may all seem too good to be true, but drone surveys and inspections really are the future for many industries. Getting this technology behind your business will make the whole data acquisition process much safer, quicker and more efficient for your surveying operations.
