Aerial (drone) surveying leverages drones to capture geo-tagged imagery of the stockpile and its immediate surroundings. Once the geotagged photos have been gathered from multiple angles, with high degrees of overlap (70-80 percent sidelap and frontlap), they are uploaded into software that then uses photogrammetry to generate a […]
Drones can be used to produce ultra high definition images with high relative accuracy. Accurate measurements can be made using orthomosaic images such as this Davidson Landing orthomosaic. It took less than 20 minutes to capture all the images needed to produce this orthomosaic of South Thorne Bay’s […]
