Today’s question is about traffic accident reconstruction. Which is the best drone for traffic accident reconstruction? Should you use Ground Control Points (GCP’s)?
Our caller is planning on purchasing a good entry level drone. Is the DJI Matrice a good drone for mapping? Or, should he stick to the Phantom 4 Pro or Inspire 2? We also discuss the importance of maintaining the highest accuracy levels. Do you need to follow a specific process in order to get this high level of accuracy?
We also talk about Ground Control Points (GCP’s). Which are the most suitable RTK-GPS systems for placing your Ground Control Points (GCP’s)? We compare systems by Trimble and Emlid. Also, learn how Drone U can help you get accurate survey grade data. Thanks to Andy from Singapore for the question. Fly safe!
