Project Description

The objective of this project is to survey a residential area and detect changes in structures for property taxation purposes. The area surveyed included about 50 houses which were clearly shown on an orthophoto and as a dense point cloud as well.

This allowed quick area examination and measurement of each property on the point cloud, and a more precise measurement right on the images.

Less than 10 Ground Control Points were physically measured on the ground.

Data Acquisition

Phantom 4 Pro drone was used for quick, precise and easy image capturing.

Best results are achieved with DatuFly™ app for drones, using vertical flight pattern at 70m (230ft) altitude.

It only takes 30 minutes to get all the required images to achieve a better than 2cm (0.065 ft.) resolution.

Datumate Advantage

DatuSurvey™ Photogrammetry solution allowed the user to quickly isolate each property on the dense point cloud calculating its area, as well as quickly seeing changes made.

Exporting the Orthophoto to AutoCAD and overlaying over the current as-built plans allow quick detection of changes. Subsequently, for each property where changes were seen, the property was digitized directly on the actual digitized images. This allowed for a very precise measurement and marking of changes.

Traditionally, to accomplish such a mission, a surveyor would have to physically measure each building and calculate its area, a lengthy process which may also incorporate safety risks in implementation.

DatuSurvey™ Enterprise Outputs

The drone’s imagery was analyzed and processed using DatuSurvey™ Enterprise photogrammetry software to quickly generate a dense point cloud and true Orthophoto images, identify and measure objects, and draw directly on the images where needed.

A point file, including names, codes and coordinates of all new points was generated. Overall, 70 new points were drafted directly on the images.

The measurement accuracy of all the points was better than 2.5 cm (0.08ft) in 3D coordinates.

True Orthophoto

A true orthophoto was generated from the vertical flight.

Texturized & Dense Point Cloud

CAD Data

A 3D CAD model in DXF format was created. It included all objects that were generated by drafting directly on the images using DatuSurvey™ Enterprise.

A14 Road and Railway Intersection Surveying for SKANSKA

As part of the UK’s A14 improvement scheme which is one of the UK’s largest road projects, it was required to map a busy A14 highway junction including a highway intersection and a railway line. The complex mapping included multiple infrastructure layers (bridge, road and railway line) as well as an accurate snapshot of the surrounding buildings to avoid future damage claims during road reconstruction work.

Quantity Check Surveying

Courts at Clarksburg is an area that is being prepared for building homes. The area surveyed is an open area where infrastructure work has been done. The objective of this project is to survey the area to check the level of filled slab areas in an effort to compare it to the planned levels. And also to check quantities of cut and fill needed to finish the prep work.

Baseball Stadium Surveying

Doppler radar is being implemented in baseball and softball venues around the world to track the trajectory of pitched and hit balls. All physical obstructions that are within the azimuth of the Doppler radar field of view were identified using the model.
