With this high level of accuracy, coupled with less time for the acquisition of the data you have
less downtime and quality actionable data sets.
During a case study by McIntosh Perry Surveying Inc published in Ontario Professional Surveyor magazine (Summer 2015) a survey of 40 hectares of farmland took four days of in field work and acquired 1800 data points with traditional survey methods, compared with 1 hour including set up and take down and capturing 31 million data points with the Sensefly eBee RTK UAV.
Upon comparison of the two data sets they concluded: “This test has shown that a terrain model created from data acquired by aerial means using the eBee platform can successfully compete in accuracy with a conventional ground topographic survey completed using RTK GNSS receivers, comprising a base and rover. These results are consistently suitable for pre-engineering design and well above the requirements for draft plans of subdivision.”
