In aggregates and mining, aerial photography and data collection offer a variety of advantages compared with traditional ground-based data gathering techniques. For example, since survey crews are not placed in a hazardous environment when they go to collect data, aerial data collection is much safer. Additionally, while using UAVs to collect data, the production of survey crews does not interrupt various production operations.
One of the main benefits of aerial imaging and surveying in the aggregates and mining industry is that they can be used for a variety of applications. These include:
- Marketing and promotion—With aerial surveying and photography, you can collect stunning images of your equipment and your property that can be used either in print media or on your website.
- Land management—Aerial photography can be used to collect pre-extraction photos and videos and for environmental assessment imaging. It can also be used to gather data for visual impact studies.
- Operations—In terms of standard operations, aerial photography can be used to collect geo references for topographic images and for inventory management. Additionally, aerial photography can be used to collect regular update images.
