Site Surveyor

Aerial survey using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs or drones)

SiteSurveyor service aggregates data from drones and other sources to provide up-to-date and accurate information about monitored facility. By combining algorithms for working with data and geospacial analytics, SiteSurveyor allows you to monitor the execution of the construction plan and to identify inaccuracies in the process of implementation of construction projects: from planning and starting earthworks to commissioning the site and improving the territory.

Solution Capabilities

Preparatory Work
  • Increase of accuracy of preparation of initial data for construction
  • Analysis of planned earthworks (includes aerial survey of a construction site, imposition of planned marks on the created model, calculation of ground mass balance and determination of the plan of excavation/embankment work with indication of the work site
Monitoring Of Construction Process
  • Photos of the executed works (allows to visually evaluate the progress of construction and build a model for calculations) and the ability to create 3D visualizations
  • Identification of deviations of object’s geometry from the planned at the early stage of construction
  • Analysis of the correctness of location of objects on the terrain (includes aerial surveying of a construction site, imposition of planned contours of objects on the created model, examination of the results by specialists and identification of deviations, development of the work plan to eliminate discrepancies)
Dynamic Analysis Of Construction Works
  • Monitoring the progress of construction, automated analysis and presentation of changes at each stage of construction
  • Forecasting the dynamics of workflow (determination of possible deviations from planned timeline)
  • Operational task statement on the basis of the photographic plan
Control Over Usage Of Construction Materials
  • Control over equipment and construction materials used
  • Analysis of materials’ storage (prevention of damage and thefts of materials and equipment during storage and strengthening control over material resources)
  • Calculation of the volume of bulk and spoil tips and comparison to planned volumes to identify discrepancies
  • Identification of fictitious work subject to payment
Industrial Safety
  • Control over industrial safety and compliance with safety and health requirements
  • Control over machinery movements
  • Monitoring of productivity level demonstrated by workers
