Applications and markets
DSM and orthophoto mapping are incredibly useful tools for surveying companies in view of internal progress reporting, boundary and topographic surveying, and volume calculation. When opening up new land in coastal areas, it is absolutely necessary for the surroundings to be surveyed continuously. Dredging companies spend a great deal of time and money on conducting terrestrial survey work, often on a large scale. Trimble UAS are the must have systems for topographic surveying in locations that are often remote, difficult or dangerous to access.
Our prime end-to-end solutions are an incredible valuable tool in mining for assessment and inventory, surface exploration, determination of removed volumes, volume calculation of stockpiles, and many more. The big advantages of using Trimble UAS in mining are that compared with ground measurements, the survey work is not in-situ and thus not intervening in the mining process which ensures optimal safety for the surveyors. Also the built-in fail-safe procedures in Trimble UASs allow you to map safely without risking injury as a result of hazardous terrain, environmental contaminants, or dangerous machinery.
Similarly to the industries above, construction companies are faced with the same problems where infrastructural improvement is concerned. In todays ever-changing landscape, on-demand rapid mapping services have become an extremely valuable tool for construction partnerships, modelling and planning. Road works, bridges, ramps, canals and flooding areas can now be easily inspected from the air. Large overviews allow engineers to take the necessary precautions when building infrastructures. Trimble UAS can replace ground surveys and provide more data at shorter intervals for lower overall cost.
Trimble UAS imagery allows for proper planning of terrain development, in-depth prospecting and visual inspection of crops and plantations. By combining visual and near infrared images, drought and other stress can be detected long before it is detectable at visible wavelengths. UAS offer a dependable, repetitive solution that is not obstructed by a cloud layer.
