Arguably, using Drones will lead to a large increase in the amount of physical data being collected, this does mean an increase in office time spent processing and utilizing this data. However, this expansion is canceled out many times over by the huge time savings a drone produces out in the field. Many of senseFly’s surveying customers say, for example, that large jobs that once took weeks can now be completed in just a few days, and that a week’s worth of traditional data collection is now achieved in just one day. Last but not least, less time spent on the ground means staff safety is improved by minimizing risk to surveying teams when measuring sites such as mines, unstable slopes and transport routes. Simply choose take-off and landing locations that are out of harm’s way.
