Like most industries, change is always constant. In the commercial drone industry, construction companies have embraced this new technology in many ways. As with most new technologies, there are always pros and cons to their use and application.
So which is better? Photogrammetry (Using Drones), or traditional LiDAR? That depends on who you ask. It is our belief that both have their place in the construction process. There are of course, a number of issues, like cost, accuracy, reliability, and much more. The related article below attempts to answer most of those questions. At MountainSky Aerial Photography, we take the approach that if it makes since, and is cost effective and increases the ROI, then it's worth investing in.
We offer several different services to construction companies including the 3D image you see above. Using advanced drones and software we use professional photogrammetry to generate 2D, 3D, point clouds, digital surface and terrain models, orthomosaics and much more. Give us a call to see what we can do for you!
