Unmanned Aerial Systems


The use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) or “Drones” is changing the way in which many disciples collect field data. Few more so than land surveying. Ragan-Smith’s Reality Capture Group is using UAVs on a weekly basis to monitor sites, provide topographic mapping, volumetric analysis, slope monitoring, and more. For times when speed trumps accuracy or the asset can only be seen from above, few systems deliver a better product than UAVs.
