DJI, Datumate launch site survey solution
Chinese aerial-imaging company DJI and automated surveying solutions provider Datumate have launched the DJI-Datumate Site Survey Solution; a UAV, software and app package that automates and expedites site surveys. The release was announced on 11 October.
The system is designed to help infrastructure, inspection, construction and surveying companies generate a working model, analytics and plan and site visualisation.
The solution includes Datumate's DatuGram 3D photogrammetry software, DatuFly tablet app for automated aerial photography and DJI's UAV.
The DatuGram software converts ground and aerial images into geo-referenced 3D models and 2D maps. The DatuFly software generates a flight and image-taking plan for the DJI aircraft based on the best practice requirements of the 3D photogrammetry.
Paul Xu, DJI's director of enterprise solutions, said: ‘We believe that DJI-Datumate Site Survey Solutions offer a professional and cost-effective end-to-end solution for the surveying, infrastructure-mapping and inspection markets.’
