Land Management & Development
Stockpile Volumetric Measurements
Slope failure represents a significant geological risk, and early detection is crucial to ensure safety. Our team of experts employs GIS mapping techniques to effectively identify ground surface steepness, utilizing the Digital Terrain Model (DTM) and Digital Surface Model (DSM) as part of the slope monitoring process. This information, along with the LIDAR survey data, is essential for slope monitoring, landslide mitigation, and prevention of slope failure. Aerial survey mapping is an added valuable tool used by specialists to track the Earth’s movement to help predict and prevent such destruction.
Deliverables We Provide
Drone images undergo correction for image distortion and are seamlessly merged during post-processing to generate a remarkably precise orthomosaic map. Every pixel within this map carries detailed 2D geographic data (X, Y), enabling precise measurements like horizontal distances and surface areas to be directly obtained.
3D Point Cloud
Drone images can be processed to produce a dense point cloud. Each point within this cloud encapsulates geospatial coordinates (X, Y, Z) and color details, furnishing a highly accurate model for measuring distances (both slant and horizontal), as well as determining areas and volumes.
Digital Surface Models (DSM)
Digital Terrain Model (DTM)
Following the removal of objects like buildings, the drone images can be utilized to construct Digital Terrain Models (DTMs). In these models, each pixel stores 2.5D information, including the X, Y, and Z values corresponding to the highest altitude.
3D Textured Mesh
The 3D textured mesh serves as a replica of the region captured by the drone, encompassing its edges, faces, vertices, and texture. This model proves particularly valuable for visual inspections or when project collaboration involves external stakeholders or public engagement.
Our team of skilled drone pilots, equipped with high-precision drones, allows us to acquire aerial data 10 times more rapidly than our industry counterparts.
