Surveying in the civil infrastructure industry can be time-intensive. Legacy surveying methods often require putting boots on the ground, which can be dangerous, and subject to human error. It can take days, weeks and even months to capture and access data, and even longer to make sense of it.
The traditional surveying of civil infrastructure has been reimagined in recent years with less manual and more autonomous options. Modern survey methods are gaining more trust in accuracy and can help you access your site data in a fraction of the time and cost.
However, with so many options available, it can take a lot of work to navigate. Here is your guide to the different methods of capture and the different data outputs available, including:
- UAV Photogrammetry
- UAV LiDAR
- Driven LiDAR
- Terrestrial Laser Scanning
