What if you could order a full site data set and have the results inside of 24 hours? Furthermore, what if the map, on your specified spatial reference, could give you real time data, measurements, and contours within seconds? Lastly, what if the map was cloud-based and allowed you to share with other engineers instantly without having to download any software?
The future of aggregate assessment is here. Gone are the days of waiting months for results and fighting CAD updates with giant downloads. The UAS industry has changed the game when it comes to aerial mapping and Autonomous Flight Technologies, Inc. has been involved since its conception.
With an aerial mapping aircraft, you can send it out, have it fly a predetermined flight plan and return to land with enough data to produce 2D and 3D topographical maps. With today's technology, it is now possible to do so and the commercial possibilities are endless. Flood mapping and damage assessment just to name a few. From an economical standpoint a single aircraft can do the work of a full survey crew in less than half the time. Although the technology is relatively new the accuracy is down to less than a cm and far more accurate than aerial Lidar or traditional laser scanning methods. Pretty extraordinary to say the least.
