About the webinar
For all construction companies, three dimensions matter: time, cost and quality. The introduction of drone mapping has changed aspects of site surveying and construction monitoring, making data collection easier, faster and especially cheaper. The 2D maps and 3D models generated from drone imagery not only provide an aerial view of your project, but they also include a rich set of data that you can measure and analyze. In this webinar, we’ll explain how to start with drone mapping and how to use drone data to save money and shorten timelines.
Register and learn about:
- Photogrammetry and drone mapping: how it works
- Drone mapping deliverables: how to retrieve powerful insights from drone data
- How to get started and achieve efficient drone mapping
- How to integrate drone data into your design and construction process
Each webinar session will be 40 minutes and include time for live Q&A.
Each session will be recorded separately. The video recording will be sent to everyone who registers, so be sure to sign up even if you cannot attend. If you wish to receive the video recording for both sessions, sign-up for both.
