Virtual Surveyor Streamlines Volumetric Calculations

By GeoConnexion - 6th May 2020 - 15:57

Virtual Surveyor has released Version 7.1 of its popular drone surveying software, introducing functionality to efficiently calculate volumetrics in quarries, mine pits, retention ponds, and other basins that fill with water. This new functionality complements advanced cut-and-fill mapping capabilities unveiled in late 2019. Virtual Surveyor is popular among surveyors because it bridges the gap between UAV photogrammetric processing applications and engineering design packages. The software generates an interactive onscreen environment with UAV orthophotos/DSMs and/or LiDAR point clouds where the surveyor selects survey points and break lines to define the topography, creating highly accurate products up to five times faster than otherwise possible.
