Exploration and Construction Management

Drones collect data quickly and accurately to conduct site surveys of exploration sites and inform construction projects from design to execution.

Exploration and Construction Management Key Benefits

Construction Planning and Design

Map large work sites to acquire detailed, precise data using drones. 2D maps and 3D models help teams optimize project planning and designs.

Progress Monitoring

Drone solutions, along with image stitching and 3D modeling software help teams stay fully informed on site progress and resource allocation – keeping projects on time and on track.

Data Collection

Collect accurate data covering large areas using a variety of sensors and software.

Construction Planning and Design

Traditional Challenges in Construction Planning and Design

  • The lack of precise position data makes it difficult to align BIM designs, road vector maps, and satellite imagery, costing time and labor.
  • 2D designs are unable to illustrate the spatial information required to fully visualize the design.
  • The BIM designs can be quite different from the reality model, making it difficult to visualize and verify the design.
  • How Drones Empower Construction Planning and Design

  • Create 3D models with accurate positioning data that can be readily fitted into the BIM models to visualize designs.
  • Designs can be optimized using drone-created 3D models that are compatible with a variety of GIS software.

    Progress Monitoring

    Traditional Challenges in Progress Monitoring

  • It is difficult to keep track of oil and gas facility construction projects as are often spread out, involving many teams.
  • Fixed cameras onsite are unable to cover the entire site in detail, failing to capture critical progress information.
  • Large quantities of video footage can drown out critical details, making it difficult to track specific areas of the project.
  • How Drones Help Monitor Progress

  • Drones can create accurate 2D maps and 3D models of the site on-demand.
  • 3D models can be used to track dynamic changes or day by day progress.

    Data Collection

    Traditional Challenges in Data Collection

  • Oil and gas construction projects usually span across far distances, making site surveying and general data collection difficult and inefficient with manual tools.
  • Resource exploration requires a continuous data stream of a large area data, and failure to obtain equipment status in a timely manner may result in inaccurate data.
  • How Drones Empower Data Collection

  • Drones are flexible, compact, yet powerful, delivering survey-grade data of large areas efficiently.
  • Deploy as frequently as needed to monitor equipment status and ensure data accuracy.
