Open mines and quarries are dangerous for traditional surveyors to work in, however mapping of these worksites is often required. The combination of aerial photographic capture and the ability to process this into 3D computer models in a fraction of the time is what makes drones and Drones-as-a-Service (DaaS) the popular modern choice for surveying. One prime example of drones excelling in their usage would be the surveying of the largest quarry within a day. Surveying the 13.7km2 limestone quarry in Ras Al Khaimah previously took 2 months, however, drones typically take two days to compile that data. Using our expansive drone fleet, we completed the 13.7km2 survey within the record time of a single day. Not only was that survey completed 60x faster than through traditional methods, but it also greatly reduced the risk to the human labor force, as it is a high-risk site to traverse on foot.
Due to the accuracy of the results and far faster turnaround time, using drones to survey a multitude of projects in any industry is a highly cost-effective and time-saving method. It is rapidly becoming the modern way to gather concise data while saving money. Drone surveying is cost-effective, fast, and displays aspects we cannot see with the human eye, such as thermal differences. The increase in safety that drone surveys offer is beyond comparison, as no amount of on-site safety measures can reduce the risk to human surveyors to the same extent as drones can. The speed at which data is captured can also not be parallelled by on-site personnel. Avoiding the outlay of drones, their payloads, and advanced training, most industries are enlisting Drones as a Service (DaaS) companies such as FEDS to carry out their surveys and provide the deliverables necessary for projects to rapidly and safely excel. The applications of drone surveying are numerous, and drone data assists multiple industries along the various stages of projects and on to maintenance.
