Land Surveying Drones in Panama

Compared to conventional aircraft, using a microdrone to carry out such mapping tasks is much easier and more efficient.

Benefits of Land Surveying Drones in Panama

• Improve data collection accuracy and efficiency
• Optimize workflow productivity
• Safely and efficiently produce cost effective turn-key DSM's and orthos on demand

Method of Land Surveying Drones in Panama

Using a laser scanner, entire areas can be captured quickly and easily, and later processed on computer. Moreover, highly detailed high-resolution landscape photography can be created with professional cameras.

Drones are a perfect platform for aerial photography and remote sensing. The built-in accelerometer and gyroscope that control flight can also be used to simultaneously control motorized camera mounts to keep the cameras level and correct for undesired tip and tilt caused by wind or a shaky pilot. 

The camera angle can be changed in real time by the pilot to provide settings from horizontal to vertical. The gyro stabilizer controls the camera to keep it oriented in a constant direction and is excellent for semi-orthometric aerial photography

Firstly, using a drone can vastly reduce the time spent collecting accurate data. By acquiring raster data from the sky – in the form of geo-referenced digital aerial images, with resolutions as sharp as 1.5 cm (0.6 in) per pixel – you can gather millions of data points in one short flight.

With collection made so simple, you can focus your energy on using and analysing data, rather than working out how to gather it.

With such a large increase in the amount of physical data being collected, this does mean an increase in office time spent processing and utilising this data.

However this expansion is cancelled out many times over by the huge time savings a drone produces out in the field. 

Last but not least, less time spent on the ground means staff safety is improved by minimising risk to surveying teams when measuring sites such as mines, unstable slopes and transport routes.
