Setting Ground Control

Utilizing a Trimble R8s GNSS receiver and a TSC3 data collector, we set pins and aerial targets that are view-able from as high as 400'. Our drones then capture imagery and the points are identified in software thus "tying down" the ortho-map we generate to the surface of the earth. Most sites only require 4-8 GCPs for accurate mapping.

This highly accurate point-cloud can be manipulated in a variety of software platforms allowing your entire team to see the site as it currently is.  With the use of multiple flights at each site over time, your surfaces are compared for precise changes and site progress.

When should drones be used?

Texas Drone Company can provide timely and accurate aerial elevations when your project needs to get off the ground. While drones are able to capture data-rich point clouds with extreme density, surveyors and engineers alike simply don't need the large data-sets found in a typical point cloud. We can deliver CAD-compatible topographic data that you can immediately be brought into your software for break-line analysis and more.
