Successful data processing and autonomous drafting start at the data collection phase. Advancements in Remote Sensing and Surveying technology have opened up a multitude of data collection options; to see if your hardware fits into our process, please review the “Equipment & Hardware” page. If you are struggling with collecting data that is both adequate and useful for aerial mapping, get started by taking a look at our recommended flight parameters overview to get a quick snapshot of what changes you can make for improving your data collection processes.
What survey types are best suited for AirWorks?
We work with many types of surveys, but there are some that provide us the best possible information to guarantee we are delivering both high-quality work and added value to our customers. We currently do work with the following types of surveys:
- Existing Conditions
- Site Planning & Feasibility
- Right of Way
What types of projects can I process through AirWorks?
You may be wondering; what type of projects does the AirWorks application accept and process? While we are able to convert almost any aerial dataset into a CAD drawing, there are some project profiles that are better suited to our application at this time. These are outlined below:
|Project Type||Note to Customers|
|Shopping Malls||All sites|
|Residential Communities||All Sites|
|Airports||If permit allows, runways and taxi lines|
|Cities/Towns||Provide LiDAR for vegetated areas|
|Coastal Projects||Ports, marinas, erosion|
|Waterways||Rivers, lakes, dams|
|Transportation/Infrastructure||Almost all sites, some exceptions|
|Railroads||All sites, with vegetation considerations|
|Renewable Energy||Large wind and solar developments|
|Utilities||Above ground only, no wire analysis|
|Aggregate Studies/Mining||Above ground only|
|Oil & Gas Distribution||Above ground only|
|Forestry||Only if LiDAR is available|
|Bridges||No structural engineering projects|
