The Next Generation of Surveying Technology
As aerial imaging equipment continues to advance, more and more professionals are incorporating the use of drones into applicable mapping projects. The largest areas of concern for many surveyors are accuracy and ease of use. GPServ offers drone mapping equipment that addresses both. Our survey supply store features aerial imaging equipment that provides accuracy in centimeter-level mapping and automated options which require no piloting.
Drone Mapping Equipment
Drone mapping equipment is currently being used in a number of industries, including land surveying, agriculture, mining, forestry and construction, just to name a few. When considering what type of drone mapping equipment and surveying accessories to purchase, first determine whether you need them to measure with relative/local accuracy, absolute/global accuracy or both. Next, consider the level of expertise you have or plan to acquire. If you have no experience operating aerial imaging equipment, an automated drone is likely your best option. However, if you have operated drones or plan to take some courses on how to do so, then you may want to consider an option that allows for manual piloting.
One of the most attractive features about aerial mapping equipment is its ability to collect data, conduct measurements and map an object or area in a fraction of the time it takes to accomplish the same project with traditional mapping equipment. Drone mapping equipment also allows surveyors to capture an accurate photogrammetric map of an area without using a manned aircraft.
