Surveying with our drone offers enormous potential to GIS professionals. With a drone, it is possible to carry out topographic surveys of the same quality as the highly accurate measurement collected by traditional methods, but in a fraction of time. This substantially reduces the cost of a site survey and the workload of specialists in the field.
CX is a complete unmanned or autonomous system, that captures aerial data with downward-facing sensors, such as RBG or multispectral cameras, and LiDAR payloads. During a drone survey with an RGB camera, the ground is photographed several times from different angles, and each image is tagged with coordinates.
From this data, photogrammetry software with CX series drone can create geo-referenced orthogonal, elevation model or 3D model of the project area. These maps can also be used to extract information such as highly accurate distances or volumetric measurements.
Unlike manned aircraft or satellite imagery, CX drones can fly at a much lower altitude, making the generation of high-resolution, high-accuracy data, much faster, less expensive and independent of atmospheric conditions such as cloud cover.
