Welcome to UAS Luxembourg
We provide drone photogrammetry services for mapping and 3D modelling.
Photogrammetry is the process by which a large number of photographs are stitched together into a single high resolution 2D orthomosaic map or a 3D model, also known as a digital twin.
This technique can be used in many different ways and it has found application in many areas, such as:
Bulk stockpile measurements
Drone Photogrammetry Applications
Drone photogrammetry is useful before, during and after the construction of a building or other object, in order to assess a site´s suitability before construction, monitor progress during construction, and provide a digital twin of the object upon completion.
Another important use case for drone photogrammetry is the ability to determine very accurately the cut and fill volume of soil (or other material) that has been displaced during a construction project.
Drone photogrammetry is perfectly suitable to provide building managers with an up-to-date digital twin of their properties, to be able to assess a building’s condition. To this end, drone photogrammetry will provide a high-resolution 3D model of a building, facilitating the detection of issues before they spiral out of control.
Conventional imaging can be used for roof-top and façade inspections, whereas thermal imaging will provide valuable information for HVAC, solar panel and thermal insulation inspections.
Municipal Services & Urban Planning
Drone photogrammetry can provide valuable information to municipalities regarding their infrastructure, and perhaps more pressingly regarding their flood mitigation. Combining high resolution orthomosaic maps with elevation data, high-risk flood areas and suitable flood zones can very effectively be identified.
In the case of a flood, drone photogrammetry can be employed to assess damage and to efficiently allocate emergency resources to the appropriate areas.
Energy and Telecom
Drone photogrammetry has found wide application in the energy and telecom industry for such purposes as continuous asset management, inspection and maintenance support, and heat mapping. It can be used for virtually any type of infrastructure and has two main benefits. Firstly, it greatly reduces the risk of bodily harm to crew members, as much of the energy and telecom infrastructure requires inspection at height. Secondly, it reduces the time required for a crew to carry out an inspection, thus allowing that crew to carry out maintenance and repairs more efficiently.
Drone photogrammetry for infrastructure inspections is used for many of the same reasons as it is for the Energy and Telecom industry. It greatly reduces the risk of harm to crew members and provides an efficient way of inspecting an object, allowing crew members to allocate more time to carrying out maintenance and repairs.
Drone photogrammetry is used in agriculture for various purposes such as crop monitoring, agricultural mapping, land photogrammetry, auditing and gathering data. It has proven effective in reducing use of fertiliser and pesticides by pin-pointing where these products are needed.
Drone photogrammetry is used in forestry to assess the health of a forest, by assessing such measures as canopy coverage and growth.
