Construction & Development

Detailed surface model of a highway bridge construction project showing drainage. This model, is so detailed you can see the rumble strips grooved into the pavement.

Aerial photography, videography and mapping offer so many new capabilities to the construction and development fields.

Working with a licensed surveyor or engineer, we create highly-accurate models of the site even prior to design. Complete with 3D surface models and detailed ortho imagery, this data can be incorporated in CAD and GIS tools to assist in the design process and produce visualizations for stakeholders. These models are accurate enough to perform drainage and cut/fill/volume estimations, and are GPS-accurate.

During construction, we can revisit the site to capture up-to-the-moment site maps to calculate and show the progress and analyze the accuracy of completion of grading. We can also capture photos, videos and flythroughs to demonstrate progress and for marketing use.
