Before a site can even begin production, it has to be properly mapped, surveyed, and designed. The oil & gas industry is well aware of the importance of this site-design planning stage, as one minor hiccup, oversight, or miscue can impact the budget of the project and hinder overall efficiency.
Using DroneDeploy’s mapping feature, companies will be provided topographical information about new site locations without having to send an entire team out in the field. These detailed maps — run in either 2D or 3D — can determine the best location as to where to construct the facilities, create access routes, and determine other logistical challenges. These maps also include important landmarks or obstructions, such as rivers, lakes, buildings, and roads that will help the engineers plan more efficiently, while also allowing them to view, edit and create annotations in 3D, which include line, marker, and area measurements.
