4 Reasons to Consider UAV/Survey Mapping


Standard methods of surveying property are great if the conditions are right. Dealing with property that is filled with hazards like bodies of moving water, rocks, hills, and other obstacles can make the job difficult and dangerous. Below are four reasons to consider using a UAV drone survey mapping method for these hard-access areas, or to get quick, no-fuss results.

Cover Difficult Terrain

Getting an accurate look at a property that is difficult to access from overgrowth of trees, shrubs, and other vegetation, bordered by water, rocky hills, and other tough to traverse conditions can be unsafe to survey by foot. Using a combination of manual survey methods and a UAV pilot to capture areas by air is the safest way to get the measurements and visual perspective you need.

Real-Time Inspections

Doing an inspection of a property by air using a UAV allows you to take pictures, video, and gives you the advantage of real-time views. You can spot problems right away and come up with a solution. Drone technology has taken surveying capabilities to a whole new level.

Fast, Accurate Damage Assessments

Natural disasters like mudslides, rock slides, flooding, and fires can cause extensive damage to property. Construction accidents can also cause a halt to projects that require a safety and damage assessment before continuing. A UAV inspection is quick and will reveal damage in areas that might not necessarily be safe to access by foot.

Construction Project Monitoring and Management

Most civil engineering firms Seattle stay busy with multiple construction projects. You can enjoy easier project oversight and management by using UAV image and video capturing. You can find out the progress of any project within a few minutes time. It allows you to monitor numerous projects without having to be at the construction site.

UAV surveying methods are one tool that is proving useful for many tasks in the field of property surveying and civil engineering. It is a safe and dependable way to get the visuals and measurements you need to make critical project management decisions.
