Mining

 

Target GroupThis course is perfect for advanced pilots. It's a beginner's guide how to use your drone in Construction Industry.
Pre-requisites• Advanced pilots who DON’T need basic flight manoeuvre training
• Students must provide their own laptop for editing purposes
ObjectiveThe construction industry also greatly benefits from drone mapping. Maps can be used to regularly update clients in the construction industry on the progress of their projects, analyse stockpiles of raw materials such as dirt and gravel, or even generate 3D models of construction sites. These maps help construction managers obtain the “big picture” and assist in strategic decision making.
ContentsDigital Scouting and Crop protection
• Monitor construction sites as they evolve. View the as-built situation of your site for up-to-date measurements and continued analysis, making earthwork management and detailed virtual inspections more efficient.
• Earthworks. Survey earthworks quickly, easily, and accurately and produce maps and 3D digital surface models for volumetric measurements, terrain modelling, and more.
• BIM. Monitor as-built site status to stay on task with BIM scheduling.
• Inspections. Create a georeferenced image database for safe and efficient post-flight inspection.
o Oil & Gas Aerial Inspection. The oil and gas industry have many needs for aerial inspection imaging. UAS technology can be used to monitor oil storage facility construction and operation, to ensure ongoing federal and statutory compliance.
o Waste Management. In the waste management industry, clients rely on up-to-date visual data of waste disposal sites. But drone imagery is also beneficial for site selection, asset planning and regulatory documentation.
o Solar & Wind. The renewable energy industry, including both solar and wind-based power generation, rely heavily on drone imaging. Solar contractors use our aerial image services for site evaluation. For solar farms located in remote areas, or those mounted above ground level, aerial inspection imagery allows clients to monitor, inspect and troubleshoot solar panels and infrastructure. Wind turbines generate a large percentage of power for many cities. However, because they are typically located in remote areas – and because of their sheer magnitude of size – inspecting wind turbines is expensive, time-consuming and dangerous.
o Water Treatment. Waste water treatment facilities utilize aerial inspection imaging for a variety of critical purposes. Drone images are ideal for documenting and analysing treatment processes, aeration functions and flow dynamics.
• Insurance Aerial Inspection. For property/casualty insurers and their clients, aerial insurance inspection imaging provides a responsive and highly detailed method for quoting coverage, policy underwriting and claims adjusting.
