Today, we talk about using drones for building inspections. How can you make an accurate building model using a drone? Which software can you use for making great client deliverables? Are there any disadvantages to using cloud based software for processing drone footage?
Because, folks in the construction industry are used to working with models, they have extremely specific requirements. And, your data acquisition technique is ultimately dependent on client’s requirements. What are some tips and tricks to accurately acquire data? Can drones be used by insurance companies to accurately assess damages?
We also talk about client deliverables. Learn how Pix4D model, an online portal compares to DroneDeploy. You can always join our in-person mapping class where these concepts are covered in great detail. Stay tuned and fly safe!
Make sure to get yourself a Drone U landing pad!
