The team at Redefined Horizons is often tasked with small surveying projects for infill type land development. Each crew has a Skydio 2 available and can deploy it for various situations as needed. Recently they have been incorporating them as a tool for mapping. While Skydio’s flight management tool isn’t specifically designed for mapping, the team developed a method of acquiring imagery to support their needs. With a few additional minutes, they can acquire the project site after they have completed their survey work. Once the imagery is back in the office, Redefined Horizons imports the imagery into Correlator3D. Following the workflows available, they kick off the processing to create the desired project deliverables. Once processing is complete, the resulting data is checked for quality and prepared for delivery to the client.
Typical deliverables consist of a digital elevation model (DEM), contours at an appropriate interval for the scale of mapping desired, and orthomosaics in multiple formats.
The benefits of using Correlator3D according to Redefined Horizons are its ease of use, and the speed in which it processes data. The infill projects we are using the Skydio 2 are typically small, under 30 acres and can be scripted to run one after another in Correlator3D.
Established in 2019, Redefined Horizons is a surveying and mapping company headquartered in Northern California. Operating various UAS, Redefined Horizons acquires imagery and process data on projects throughout the US. For more information, visit www.redefinedhorizons.com.
