Drones and accompanying software have changed the construction industry and what can be accomplished in a short period of time. While 3D mapping and modeling is not new, a drone’s ability to take numerous aerial photos of a large landscape in a short period of time, and instantaneously upload those photos into specialized software has made construction projects easier to conceive and manage. 3D mapping can do everything from surveying land, creating 3D topographical maps, and creating 3D photographs of what finished construction projects will look like on certain topography. This technology can be used to not only conceive construction projects, and manage them, but can also be used in promotional and marketing materials. The use of 3D mapping technology is endless.

Aerial 3D mapping is accomplished through the use of photogrammetry. This was previously conducted through the use of a helicopter, but drones have made this extremely affordable and something smaller companies have access to. Aerial photogrammetry works by taking many, many high-resolution photographs that software then analyzes by identifying common “tie points” in each picture. By comparing these “tie points” the software can then determine the depth and elevation of each point and can build a 3D map by analyzing the 2D photographs. The software can then make specialized maps depending on what the customer requires, such as elevation maps, surface models, or Orthomosaics.
