Below is a demonstration model. Click on the play button to activate the full 3D model and navigate it as follows:
'Left Click' to rotate the model through any of the 360 degree axis.
'Mouse Wheel' to zoom in and out of the model (also works with CTRL + left click).
'Right Click' to pan through the model.
Alternatively click on any of the numbered circles to highlight that area of the model and see an explanation of some of the key features and benefits a drone survey offers.
If the model appears to have a simplified texture it means that either your internet connection is too slow to download the full model or that your browser or graphics card needs updating.
We recommend viewing the model in full screen mode with the rendering set to HD for the most vivid experience.
The model above is a 3D textured mesh to enable people to view a high quality interactive representation of the site surveyed. It doesn't however allow for the accurate measurement of volumes and distances that would be expected from a point cloud.
The image below shows the same survey data outputted in a point cloud format and opened in AutoCAD's ReCap360.
The image shows where the width of 3 pathways on site were measured:
From left to right the measurements from ReCap were 1.588m, 3.290m, and 1.599m. The actual physical measurements of the same points on site were 1.600m, 3.300m, and 1.600m.
The largest variance between the actual physical dimensions of the pathways and the software measurements was 12mm, which fits within the 10-30mm range of accuracy that is usual for survey data.
Due to the fact the survey data is gathered by drones it is always georeferenced which makes it suitable for GIS applications. Although the above data is demonstrated in AutoDesk software the actual survey data can be output to a wide variety of formats.
Common output formats are .las, GeoTIFF, .laz, .obj, .shp, .dxf, .xyz, .rcp, .ply & .pdf.
