UAV Imaging Connects As Planned With As Built For Accurate Building Information Modeling

SkyData UAV works with development teams – surveyors, architects, engineers and contractors – to deliver technical imaging services to help map, design, monitor and document the progress of your construction projects.

DATA & IMAGES FOR DECISION-MAKING

By incorporating our near real-time metadata and images into your construction monitoring workflow, your projects are displayed in detailed 2D orthomosaics images and 3D models to improve the overall understanding of your project’s status.

SkyData delivers images and metadata across multiple phases – site clearing, earth moving, concrete pours, utility trenching, masonry, roofing, HVAC installation, painting, road and parking lot construction and landscaping.

When SkyData’s images and a project’s plans are viewed simultaneously, you can immediately see whether BIM plans and construction align. Adjustments are discussed. Changes are documented. Issues are resolved that could impact the bottom line.

INCREASE EFFICIENCY & LOWER COSTS

Once the initial flight pattern is established, SkyData replicates the same flight over the project’s life to provide you with precision data and images. Our UAVs fly lower, closer and more cost effectively over proposed and existing construction sites than manned aircraft to provide detailed, accurate and geo-located images and metadata:

  • High-resolution photographs
  • 4K Videos
  • 2D orthomosaics
  • 3D point clouds
  • Digital surface models
  • Stockpile volume calculations
  • Contours


TRANSFERABLE FILES


SkyData UAV’s metadata and images generate:

  • FBX – a mesh for by Autodesk software.
  • LAS – a point cloud for all point cloud viewers.
  • OBJ – a mesh for import into all 3D viewers.
  • Ortho – a georeferenced aerial map and digital elevation model.
  • RCM – a mesh for ReMake.
  • RCS – a point cloud for use in Autodesk software.
  • SHP – a contour file viewed in any GIS application.


SkyData UAV makes it easier to bring accurate data into workstations to calculate volumes, cuts and fills, measure contours, monitor residential and commercial developments, verify buliding and landscape designs, and document road and bridge construction.

Adding SkyData UAV to your BIM workflow helps you to be more knowledgeable and gives you a better outcome.

WORKING WITH SKYDATA UAV

SkyData UAV is available on a per-project or for multiple visits to the same location. Before undertaking a project, we have a conversation with you to understand the scope of work, deadlines and required deliverables.

For additional information or to schedule a meeting, please call 954.533.3194
or email us at 
Projects@SkyDataUAV.com.

SkyData UAV is the missing link between project design and construction. We deliver timely construction site images and data that integrates with CAD and building information modeling software. Engineers, architects and contractors use overlays our images and data with their plans to ensure that their projects' as-designed conform to the as-built. 


SkyData UAV helps you to save time monitoring your projects. Decisions are made faster. Projects move forward more quickly.
