Minimizing Cost of Drone Mapping Projects

With guest speaker Robert Thomson, Geomatics Technologist at Meridian Surveys


It is often challenging for drone operators to determine cost savings when it comes to their processing software solution. Altitude restrictions, line of sight requirements and overall flight duration create unique challenges for completing larger drone projects in a cost-competitive world. Since mapping expenses tend to rapidly increase as projects become larger, using the wrong image processing software can exacerbate this leading to narrowing project profits. This webinar will show how a higher-end software such as SimActive’s Correlator3D™ can minimize overall project costs. 


💡Specifically, attendees will learn about the following:


  • Typical drone mapping project costs

  • Cost variations as projects become larger  

  • Workflows in Correlator3D to minimize man-hours 

  • Using multiple PCs to accelerate processing
