Environmental Show of the South
Skytec recently presented high accuracy data acquisition and cost savings results for LiDAR and photogrammetry mapping missions at the 2017 Environmental Show of the South. Skytec presented with past-clients and close associates from Oasis Consulting Services from Atlanta, GA. The event highlighted past partnerships with survey professionals on mapping missions and the need for ongoing geomatics education among UAS mapping operators.
A particular focus during the presentation, a 2,000-acre mapping project demonstrated a reduction of costs greater than 1/2 the cost of traditional methodologies. On this particular project, Skytec worked closely with the client’s Professional Surveyor to establish control and check points prior to UAS data acquisition. These points allowed the Skytec data processing team to apply positioning corrections to data products. These products were delivered to the client's surveyor for QA/QC review and eventual surface and elevation product development. The cost savings, created by the highly successful UAS mission, allowed the client to retain the surveyor for additional services, beyond the regular scope of basic mapping work.
