3D modelling with drones creates a digital space model of an object captured with a drone. The process of converting aerial imagery into a 3D model is called aerial photogrammetry.
GIS Drones is an industrial leader in 3D modelling. Our drones are more economical and easy to use than traditional helicopter surveying. The drones also have geo-tagging, which embeds geographical data into aerial images. It includes altitude, latitude, and longitudinal data points for creating highly accurate 3D digital surface models.
Our high-quality 3D modelling with drones and mapping services are particularly useful in construction, land surveying, agriculture, architecture, public safety, security planning, mining, oil and gas, and waste management industries. Get free consultation from GIS Drones for your next project.
What are the Benefits of 3D Modelling with drones?
3D modelling with GIS drones can provide the following benefits:
It helps to keep track of all construction projects.
It can identify structural and maintenance flaws in the building.
It provides high-resolution drone images with Point Cloud.
It comes with an in-built sensor to collect drone data about the site.
3D Map helps in the creation of an accurate 3D model.
It is a prerequisite for creating digital twins.
It provides spatial freedom. You can access any confined space at acute or oblique angles with a powerful drone camera.
Quick data processing significantly reduces the surveying time.
A 3-D map ensures a better visualisation experience.
How to Create a 3D Model with GIS Drones?
The process of creating a 3D model with GIS drones involves 5 steps:
Select the right Drone. You can choose a suitable drone from our fleet based on your requirement.
Consider the ground conditions. The survey should be done in the daytime during clear weather.
Step up ground control points to mark the surveying area.
Check the battery life and memory of your drone. After that, set up the drone at a desired angle and set up your gimbal, aperture, and shutter speed for automated flight. The drone will start filming the site.
Once the film is complete, use professional modelling software to process this data and generate a quality 3-D Model. You can also seek professional advice while choosing the software.
