Surveying Case Study
Time Pressure? No Problem
A Results Analysis
An engineering and surveying firm contracted one of our pilots to conduct a flight of 800 acres and generate a topographical survey map for a water distribution system upgrade, pre-construction. Using our Wingtra One, we were able to deliver extremely precise results in a remarkable time period.
Today’s drones can cover massive scale surveying projects in a fraction of the time of ground surveys. With topographical mapping having a GSD as low as 0.7cm – equivalent to having a survey point on every 0.7cm of land – the precision and quality of these maps is completely unmatched by anything else in the industry.
When comparing a relatively small 800-acre project, we can start to see the overwhelming advantage of aerial surveying:
Traditional Ground Survey
Wingtra One Aerial Survey
Total Field Hours: 80
Total Field Hours: 6
Utilizing this technology is not only making the jobs of surveying professionals easier but sweeping across multiple industries achieving similar outcomes. With the ability to deliver actionable results to the client in less than 1/10th of the time of traditional methods, the concern of going beyond project timelines can be a thing of the past.
