Get A Better View: Why You Should Be Using Aerial Drone Surveying

Construction & Contractors Blog

If you need to have your land surveyed, and you still rely on traditional methods, change the way you look at surveys. Many people still rely on traditional land surveys. But, there's a better way to get the reports you need; namely, drone surveys. If you've never used drones for surveys before, you need to. Drone surveys allow you to get a bird's eye view of land, without ever leaving the ground. Before you pass up the opportunity to invest in drone surveys, read the information provided below. Here are just four of the many benefits you'll enjoy when you switch to drone surveys for your projects. 

Faster Field Results

When your projects rely on land surveys, you can't afford to wait days, or even weeks, for the results. That's where drone surveys come into the picture. With drone surveys, you get rapid results right from the field. That's because the drone can transmit information directly to the monitor, while it's still surveying the land. As a result, you'll be able to identify problem areas immediately, which allows you to get started planning your project faster. 

Enhanced Land Data

When you sit down to plan your project, you need to know what you're up against. Unfortunately, you can't always get the best data from a traditional land survey. This is especially true where elevations are concerned. Drone surveys provide you with the enhanced land data you need when you're planning a project. Drone surveys can also provide you with color photographs of the area, which allows you to identify data points and georeferences that can provide vital information for the planning phase of your project. 

Accurate Survey Reports

When your projects require land surveys, you need those reports to be as accurate as possible. Inaccurate land surveys can cause serious problems for your projects, which is why you need to switch to drone surveys. Traditional land surveys are subject to human error. Luckily, you won't have that issue when you switch to drone surveys. Because drone surveys gather data electronically, your survey reports will provide up-to-the-minute accuracy. 

Increased Surveyor Safety

Finally, if your projects involve remote locations, you need to be concerned about safety. Traditional land surveys can be dangerous for the surveyor, especially in remote locations. With drone surveys, the risk is removed. Drones can maneuver through the remotest of locations, including areas involving steep or rugged terrain, without harm to the surveyors.

And the Buildings Go Up

Have you ever driven past a large building that was still under construction? You may have stopped for a moment and admired the steel trusses and the heavy concrete blocks used to form and support such a large architectural creation. Here's a secret: construction workers do the same. Workers in this industry never cease to be amazed at what they can create from seemingly boring materials. Concrete turns into a school. Steel turns into a doctor's office. It really is incredible. You may not feel quite as amazed as you read about construction on this blog, but if you get at least a fraction of that wondered, amused feeling, we will be satisfied.
