Ever wonder how and why a UAV Map works? Sure you have seen the pictures and the patterns ran but why do they look the way they do?

Ever wonder what a drone pattern looks like to create our Ortho Elevation, terrain and 3D models. My military men and women and some others will appreciate this. In simple it's a CS pattern with equal legs and equal track spacing adjusted for wind speed and drift. Many of you may have seen a picture similar to this before and thought it looked cool but I wanted to include a little information so you're know what your looking at. Here is an example of a CS pattern ran with one of our UAV's at a project site.

Simplified
Legs= Each line you see in the pattern ran for a predetermined distance and time.
Track spacing = The distance between each leg of the pattern/must be equal throughout
Turns = Must be completed at or as close to 90 deg's as possible to ensure an accurate pattern
Drift = The variable distance between each waypoint in which the drone is acted upon needed for correction of course (wind speed, air speed)

What is everyone using as it relates to map model building. We have found success with Point Cloud Systems and identifiers. PCS has proven a high degree of pin-point accuracy and ease in measuring as well as being a great base for 3D model generation.

UAS has changed the future of mapping and our capabilites. The ability to generate on the site 3D maps and models has helped propel our business in construction and civil engineering to great heights.

Mapping with UAVs has really helped us contribute and find our way in construction and civil engineering. This spring I felt as the owner of the company that it was important to have a degreed GIS background on top of my BSB. This should help us set our firm apart in the mapping comunity and bring a higher level of interest into UAS mapping

Loving the accuracy point cloud systems provide in the mapping and measurement field. Based upon millions of gps waypoints we have found success with certified measurements based upon these systems. Point Clouds anyone?

Because point cloud generation is based off millions of gps waypoints accurate measurements and volumetric reports can be generated and tracked with ease while reducing the risk to staff, thus reducing workers comp claims

You have enough to worry about, let us manage the progressionary stages of your project for you. High-resolution datasets and image wraps along with point cloud generation allow for accurate information sharing across multiple platforms.
