High-Flying Solutions for SEE Civil’s Survey Needs
The use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) is only going one way, and that’s up.
When SEE Civil wanted to advance its survey drone program, it turned to Trimble, Propeller and SITECH Construction Systems.
SEE Civil has more than 30 years of experience completing a wide variety of projects encompassing all aspects of civil construction and urban development.
Across the scope of its projects, SEE Civil uses professional surveyors to complete a range of activities.
The SEE Civil team wanted the ability to use UAV drones in conjunction with traditional survey processes to quickly gather high-resolution geospatial images and to collect critical survey-grade data about their construction sites. The company also wanted to implement a more cohesive survey methodology to track project progress and to maximise productivity across its jobs.
Experts from Propeller analysed See Civil’s needs and recommended leveraging Trimble Stratus software, Trimble Business Centre and Propeller’s data analytics and visualisation platform, AeroPoints, with SEE Civil’s drone program.
Today, SEE Civil’s team of 10 surveyors is using Trimble Status and drones to efficiently map, measure and share survey information about worksites. Logging in through the company’s Trimble account, engineers and project managers can see surfaces visualised in 3D instantly. Teams create volume measurements to compare elevations captured with the drone, comparing those values to the design for accurate project tracking and reporting.
Using Trimble Stratus, teams also develop high-quality deliverables for cut and fill mapping, stockpile management and quantification, cross-section analysis, and evaluating slope heights to compare with site measurements.
Trimble Stratus is also helping SEE Civil to enhance and accelerate its reporting capabilities and to communicate project progress. End-of-month reporting is now also much simpler using the Trimble Status platform, reducing stress and providing more information for project teams, faster.
