Structure from motion (SfM) photogrammetry relies on a highly redundant data set of multiple overlapping images for a dense matching of points. Recent advancements in UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) technology allow us to increase our point cloud density from 60 - 300 PPM² up to 1100 PPM² in average lighting conditions. File sizes are easily reduced to accommodate client needs.
Merging new SfM software and the latest GIS technology allows X1 Aeronautics to provide clients with a wide variety of final deliverables. Project completion times are commonly reduced by 60% compared to traditional aircraft and ground survey crews. SfM is well suited for areas relatively free of vegetation and supplies a higher level of detail, allowing management to expedite fact based decisions.
