    In the mid 1960’s a hardcover book was published showing ‘Bird’s Eye’ views of natural environments, some quite dramatic. That book, and now yours would seem to create an interesting contrast between natural environments and man-made urbanized environments, and possibly of the same environments and places. You may already be aware of that book in which case disregard this email. As first a landscape architect and later as an urban planner, I have often wondered if people actually realize what they are covering up, i.e. natural systems such as creeks, small rivers, natural ponds, etc, Why must such natural resource systems be sacrificed, especially when those waterways are sought after when the water is gone. In any event this might be a possible future book for you. Good luck.

    I agree that the use of drones would help dramatically in the process of urban mapping and planning. Because they give you a different perspective than just being on the ground, you can easily see the layout of any city. I think that when making urban plans, it would be very important to make user that there are multiple main roads to get to any destination. Traffic occurs when there are not enough main roads to accommodate all of the cars that use the roadways.

    I thought it was really cool that land surveyors could use drones to define property boundaries. My uncle wants to buy some land to build a home on, so I think hiring a land surveyor could really benefit him. How can you tell they have high quality drones?

    Thanks for pointing out the benefits of drones in urban planning. I didn’t know that after mapping a site with a drone, it is possible to generate a digital surface model. I think that would help make sure that you could have a more accurate plan for buildings and it would help avoid problems down the line.

    That’s really insane that a whole day of work can take thiry minutes with a drone. My boss wants to survey a lot of land we just got and see exactly what we have to work with from a holistic view. We’ll have to look more into aerial imagery acquisition services.

    How interesting that after mapping the site with a drone, surveying experts can generate a digital surface model. If I were to need the help of a survey service, I will consider someone that could use drones to map the land. Thanks for sharing this useful post on drones and mapping experts.

    It’s good that you point out that using drones for surveying is cheaper and faster than traditional methods. I want to begin a construction project in the near future, and I am considering using drone surveying for the project. I’m going to look and see if there is a drone surveying company in my area.

    Thanks for pointing out that drone imaging can help with mapping boundaries and property assets. I think that it would be helpful to use drones when trying to map or survey an area because it would give you a better angle than pretty much anything else, and would help make sure that you could see the whole area. That would probably help make sure that you could get a more accurate image and depiction of what you needed which would help you do a better job in that area overall.

    Thanks for providing some benefits of drone surveying in urban planning. I had no idea that it identifies boundaries and land features in high resolution photos. In my own understanding, drones can make the job faster. With that, if I were to invest i the real estate industry, I would choose this method since it is efficient yet cheap.

    I agree with this. Technology nowadays helps our work become easier. Great job for sharing with us the benefits of using drones for surveying. We do property surveying in Arlington VA. If you need comprehensive surveying services, give us a call or visit our site.

    Drones do reduce risk taken by humans when capturing amazing moments. However, it has cost some people the loss of thier jobs. Nevertheless, it was a great idea implementing drones. we can now capture moments that we thought was impossible to capture. Overall, nice write up. i actually think your article on drones beats mine. either waysm you can take a look at the article on my blog TECTEEM
    Below is a direct link to the site.

    It’s good to know that I would need to have a large drone to take aerial photographs in order to create a three-dimensional LiDAR map. My colleague and I are planning to start a geomapping service, so we would need to buy equipment for our planned business venture. I’ll share the information you wrote here with him so we would start looking for used LiDAR mapping equipment for sale online. Thanks!

    It’s nice to know that more automated process are being incorporated in land surveys nowadays. I’d like to be able to start investing on land properties soon because the recent years have been quite the reminder that I should try to protect my assets from being affected by the fluctuations of the value of the US dollar. I can see how get ALTA surveys can give me more insight on which properties to buy and hold onto.
