SEP were contracted to carry out a topographical survey of a large housing development. Since work onsite was ongoing the field data needed to be captured very quickly, so as to ensure the survey provided a true snapshot in time for the muckshift operations
As the survey was to be used for volume calculations, the survey had to provide a true snapshot in time - ensuring stockpiles of material weren't measured twice or not at all given the day-today works involved moving the stockpiles around site. the site measured around 900 meters by 600 meters.
The drone survey proved to be the best option, given the speed at which it could survey the whole site. Survey works were completed in a little over 1 hour, with results processed back at the office. Deliverables of DWG contours, Pointcloud and ortho photo, were delivered to enable the client to carry out there volume analysis.
