Drone Mapping & 3D Modelling

Drone imagery can be leveraged to provide high resolution 2D maps and 3D models, providing you with precision volumetric, area, and height measurements. Data can be easily analyzed via importing the 3D point cloud into your CAD software of choice.

Project: Yard Maintenance via 2D mapping and 3D modelling

2D Drone Mapping

To aide in the process of reorganizing their equipment yard, our client requested a 2D map of the site so they could pre-plan the move. They had previously relied on google maps, however due to the dated and low resolution imagery, we were brought in to create an updated before and after map of the site.

Utilizing the data that we were able to provide during the before and after, our client was able to successfully and neatly complete their yard reorganization.

For a high resolution version of the map, please click here or on the image above. Note, the high resolution image is 45mb in size.

By zooming in on the image, you’ll see that drone imagery is superior to what is currently on Google Maps.

3D Modelling

In addition to the above, we also created a 3D model of the site to aide in future inspections and reorganization. Please watch the video below to see a 3D fly around of the site. Note, this is not video footage of the site, but instead an accurate 3D model that was created strictly by utilizing drone imagery.

Benefits of drones in mapping and modelling

  • High resolution imagery that is superior to other mapping tools
  • Obtain an accurate representation of land or structures in both 2D and 3D
  • Accurately measure areas, distances, and volumes
  • Safely inspect hard to reach or hazardous areas via drone
  • Easily utilize 3D point clouds within CAD software
  • Drone mapping is green and has little to no carbon footprint
