Quarry and housing development - 3D drone map

Drone mapping a quarry and new housing development

Mission Summary

  • Goal:  To create a 'drone map' of a quarry and housing development
  • Tech: Skyray fixed wing drone, Canon S100 camera, Tower app, Drone Deploy
  • Conditions: Midday, sunny, nil wind
  • Outcome: 50 hectares where successfully mapped in 14min. :)

I found an excellent site that was going to allow me to demonstrate how a drone map can assist both a quarry manager and a housing development manager with planning and monitoring of the site.
