Site Scan, our drone data platform built for construction and engineering professionals, has evolved significantly since launching over a year ago. Not only can you now use 3DR and DJI drones and our multi-engine processing with Pix4D, but it’s also become a complete enterprise solution for analyzing your drone data and sharing it across your organization.
We want to make it as easy as possible for our customers to do two things: collect accurate drone data with whatever vehicle they’d like to use, and get insights from that data with our suite of in-browser analytics tools. Today, we’re introducing three new features that help our customers do just that. Read on to see what’s new—and don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions!
Fly seamlessly with the DJI M200
One of the most advanced industrial drones on the market, the DJI M200, now works seamlessly with Site Scan! The M200 has long range, a 32 minute max flight time with payload, and much more. It’s already being put to work on construction and engineering projects across the world, helping collect highly accurate, reliable data. Now, you can fly it with Site Scan to map your jobsite, capture high-resolution inspection photos, and much more.
View, measure, and analyze point clouds
We recently launched our point cloud viewer in Site Scan, making it possible for you to view your projects in 3D with the click of a button. Today, we’re making the point cloud viewer even more powerful: now, you can make different kinds of measurements on your point cloud in real-time—including height, distance, area, and angles—all within the browser in Site Scan. Also, you can view your model at higher resolutions by adjusting the point budget and size to your liking. With these new point cloud tools, you can easily view and measure a whole new dimension of your jobsite.
Track volume calculations over time
Jobsites can change quickly, and earthwork quantities are no exception. Now that you can get volume measurements and cut fill calculations directly within Site Scan, our new Volume Report feature gives you the ability to track how your earthwork and stockpile quantities change over time for any georeferenced Site Scan project. With the Volume Report, managing earthwork quantities is simpler and easier than ever before.
Have questions about these new features or would just like to learn more about Site Scan? We’d love to help: just reach out to 3DR Sales for a web demo and discovery call. Happy flying!
