Building & Infrastructure

Today's realtors face ever higher competition. In such an environment, differentiation in fundamental to success and drones offer a unique perspective to both customers and brokers alike. Aerial photos and videos allow properties to be showcased in new and creative ways, adding to the allure while also illustrating the surrounding environs. Combined with indoor photography, realtors are now able to arm themselves with creative tools that were only available to the largest of projects in the past.

Pairing DJI products with software platforms also enables new creative avenues for showcasing unique qualities of a particular property. Prospective buyers could measure out areas for specific features they might want to place on their lawns. A 3D model can be generated from photographs to allow individuals to experience the architecture in new and unique ways. Experiencing properties in more interactive ways allows agents to help clients better envisage how a property meets the needs of client.

  • Phantom 4
    DJI's lightest platform is quick to deploy and simple to transport. Equipped with a 4K camera, the Phantom 4 can showcase properties or accurately map a region.
Building inspections often require teams of people clambering along walls, walking across rooftops and the construction of scaffolding.

Armed with a DJI Inspire carrying the DJI Zenmuse X5, hundreds of high quality 16 megapixel images or reams of clear and sharp 4K footage can be captured in a single flight for close inspection on the ground. With problem areas identified and evaluated in advance, repairs can be carried out more quickly and efficiently.

These efficiencies are further enhanced using the DJI Zenmuse XT camera. Mounted on the Matrice 100, it can fly for up to 30 minutes allowing it to inspect large structures or complexes. If mounted to an Inspire it can be launched rapidly in environments where speed is essential. The Zenmuse XT enables more holistic data collection, providing heat map data that serves as a basis for analysis, feeding more accurate predictions for future building defects, root cause analysis, and even identification of appropriate remedial solutions.

  • Matrice 200 Series
    Versatile platform for flying thermal or visual sensors so teams can capture high quality data for detailed and accurate maps, orthomosaics and 3D models.
  • Matrice 100
    Modular design allows users to integrate third-party sensors or DJI's own Zenmuse XT thermal camera and Zenmuse X5 series of professional-grade cameras to create high quality maps, orthomosaics and 3D models.
Today’s cities rely on an extensive transportation infrastructure to drive the commerce that makes them economic power houses. Much of our infrastructure, however, was built in the previous century, necessitating regular inspections to ensure not only efficiency, but also public safety.

All DJI aircraft support a range of UAV photogrammetry apps, allowing for the recovery of exact positions of surface points from aerial images captured by DJI platforms. This information can be quickly processed through customized software to create centimeter accurate 2D orthomosaics and maps, as well as 3D virtual models that can be explored as if in the space. This information allows transportation experts to evaluate the needs of the environments they work in more effectively.

UAVs can also be used to monitor traffic flows, providing an overhead view in areas where this would otherwise require aircraft. The insights this provides could help minimize congestion and eliminate accident and traffic hotspots.

DJI’s UAV platforms allow GIS professionals to quickly collect geo-referenced aerial images. All DJI platforms geo-tag images with GPS information which can be processed with photogrammetry to produce point clouds, orthomosaics, and digital terrain models. Prior to UAVs, such mapping could only be achieved by aircraft. Now, mapping technology is drastically more accessible, allowing individuals and organizations to capture and document the world around them. For the highest accuracy data, we recommend you utilise ground control points (GCPs) when capturing your data. You can then tag the GCPs during processing to produce outputs with centimetre accuracy. The Inspire 1 is a powerful ready-to-fly mapping tool, or deploy the Matrice series to customise your own solution. Our Zenmuse series of cameras offer several options in terms of resolution and weight. Our M600 platform can carry a wide range of full frame camera systems to meet unique project needs.

Modern construction projects operate on a scale never before seen in human history. Requiring unprecedented amounts of materials and heavy machinery, today’s contraction projects are marvels of engineering and efficiency.

Material stockpiles need to be closely monitored to ensure sufficient supply. Monitoring often requires multiple people large amounts of time, but can now be achieved quickly by one person through a combination of DJI UAV technology and advanced photogrammetry technologies. This technique can be used to create 3D models at <1mm accuracy, and compared with CAD models for progress analysis. DJI’s industry leading sense and avoid technology, found on the DJI Phantom 4 and the DJI Matrice 100 provides peace of mind when flying to capture data.

Resource extraction firms today face intense pressure from low commodity prices and regulatory pressures. Operational efficiency is fundamental to sustaining sites through difficult market conditions, and data captured by UAVs can provide fundamental insights.

Rapid surveying with ground control points (GCPs) allow for <1cm accuracy data capture. Automated stockpile calculation and slope grading provides invaluable real world data on operational output, as well as equipment fuel consumption costs in quarries.

DJI’s software development kit allows firms to build powerful applications, such as autonomous LiDAR tunnel inspection with an M100. Such applications greatly increase not only increase safety, but also represent significant cost savings on exiting methods.
