Drones in Urban Planning

Drone data creates accurate 2D and 3D models that integrate seamlessly with local geographic information systems, helping teams visualize results.

 City Modeling

Urban-Rural Classification

Corridor Mapping

Design and plan more effectively with 3D reality models that accurately reflect landform and architectural information.

Obtain accurate 2D maps and 3D models of the landscape as frequently as required to ensure proper, up-to-date classification.

Quickly map corridors such as rivers, bridges, and roads, creating accurate 2D and 3D models to facilitate maintenance and inspection.

 Traditional Challenges in City Modeling

How Drones Help Create Cities Models

  • The lack of precise position data makes it difficult to align BIM designs, road vector maps, Google maps, and satellite imagery, costing time and labor.
  • 2D designs are unable to illustrate the spatial information required to fully visualize the design.
  • The BIM designs can be quite different from the reality model, making it difficult to visualize and verify the design.
  • Quickly take off and fly over cities or rural areas to capture data using automated flights, reducing costs and cutting fieldwork hours.
  • Create 3D models with accurate, geo-referenced data that can be readily fitted into the BIM models to visualize designs.
  • The 3D models generated using photogrammetry software are compatible with a variety of GIS software, streamlining the planning
