This session covers today’s decision-making process for employing three automated surveying technologies when approaching a mapping project. The session presents considerations for using land surveying, aircraft, UAS and/or a combination of the three techniques for a particular mapping project. Consideration of scope, accuracy, precision, site location, site conditions, site access, FAA airspace limitations, deliverables, budget and schedule are all factors to be evaluated in order to be competitive, meet client requirements and expectations, and be in compliance with applicable state and federal laws.
