Drones have become an essential tool throughout the lifecycle of a construction project. However, one area where they have sometimes fallen short is in conducting as-built surveys. This is for a simple reason: drones have been designed to effectively capture imagery and data from the top down, but not from the side. Surveying a groomed site for pre-construction, for example, is far easier than trying to capture taller, finished structures—the flight is more complex, and requires the correct altitudes and gimbal angle in order to ensure accuracy.
