As legal restrictions ease and it becomes easier to fly UAS’s, their popularity with professional organizations are going to continue to skyrocket. They continue to prove their worth, assisting with a wide variety of workflows, from agriculture to disaster response to archaeology.
They are able to collect real-time data in seconds from locations that are difficult to access and potentially be hazardous for humans. They’re also able to cover larger amounts of area in shorter amounts of time, ultimately saving money on manual costs, such as hiring a pilot. But what sets competitors apart in this vastly emerging market for UAS technology? It all comes down to the quality of the data and the time it takes to process that data.
Historically, photogrammetric projects are time- and resource-intensive projects with a slow turnaround time. The workflows require specialized expertise, which can also become costly. Because a UAS can collect data at a rapid pace, the customers expect the processing time of that data to match the speed at which it was collected.
GeoApp.UAS allows you to upload, store, process, and share UAS data to the cloud and works with any fixed wing or rotary drone. It supports compressed data for input or output, provides easy handling of orientation data, and allows you reproject outputs to different coordinate systems. Because it is cloud-based, you can kick off and monitor processing from anywhere. Paired with Hexagon Geospatial’s M.App Chest, this lightweight smart application generates targeted results for all UAS processing needs.
