Real-time disaster response requires real-time data. With a thorough understanding of current job-site updates, we have an enhanced ability to keep all projects on track. In just a fraction of the time, a drone can gather better visual data than a traditional surveyor walking on foot. Drones improve progress tracking and increase the ability to circumvent potential challenges, reducing/eliminating future costs and delays. By providing a birds-eye view of job sites, materials, machinery, and people, drones give an improved approach to construction measurements that has yet to be replicated at the same caliber.
