As drones become more sophisticated, drone mapping services are replacing the old gold standard, satellite imagery.
Satellites have a unique place in history – who can forget the first time they saw a satellite photo of the beautiful blue Earth? When it comes to high resolution aerial imagery for enterprises, however, they are old news. Today’s drone mapping services can produce even better results faster and cheaper than ever.
For both 2D and 3D mapping, drones have unbeatable advantages:
1) Drone Services Benefits far outweigh Cost
As anyone who has tried it knows, leasing satellite bandwidth for aerial photography is an exhaustive process. One-time projects, or even those lasting “just a few” months, virtually never find affordable rates. After crunching the numbers, even the Pentagon found it too pricey.
Other equipment and professional services can be used, of course – generating images that can be stitched together into a 2D panorama or 3D map with the right software. Only drones provide the capacity to capture and process the data all in one step, however, cutting costs substantially.
2) Drones Are Equal to or More Accurate than Other Options
Wielded by professionals, drones can create 3D reality models and maps accurate to less than an inch. Drone inspection services make it possible to identify mechanical problems quickly, even after weather disasters or other conditions that make a site too hazardous for direct inspection. This makes drones great for construction, insurance, and many other industries.
3) Drones Deploy Faster and Update Intelligence More Easily
Project managers love drone mapping services because they can help track complex processes over time. For example, you can manage inventory, plan cut/fill operations for earthworks, or simply watch the project unfold through a 3D timeline updated at the click of a mouse.
A slight discrepancy in data at the beginning of your project can end up costing months of your time and millions of dollars down the line. Let the drone technology experts at Eye-bot Aerial Solutions help you get the facts from start to finish.
