Drone Mapping: Aerial and Ground Measurements

by TNyland 14. February 2019 11:26

The rapid advancement and multiplying options have drastically reduced the cost of drones, shifting business models for a variety of industries. The number of public safety agencies acquiring drones has risen by 82% in the last year alone. Drones and lasers are transforming the way investigators collect their data on scene and are rapidly becoming one of the most invaluable tools for investigators who are tasked with accurate crash, crime, and fire analysis.

Drones provide many benefits to crash, crime, and fire investigators, and while there is a cool and fun element to flying a drone there are extensive rules, regulations, and certifications that need to be completed before one is able to fly their drone high in the sky and take their investigative skills to the next level.

Laser Technology, Inc's. (LTI) second's Crash, Crime, and Fire Investigators Webinar Series revolved around drone mapping and the requirements to legally fly your drone. Part two of this webinar series took place on February 5, 2019 that hosted over 200 live attendees!

LTI asked industry experts and certified trainers Mike Allard [Forensic Diagram], David Rineholt [Collision Technologies], and Matt Hewko [Technical Mapping, Inc.], to dedicate an hour of their time to review hardware and software options, flight patterns and photographic techniques, regulations and certifications, and how to rend the data for drone and laser mapping. The intent was to provide a foundation for investigators to help them understand and integrate drone and laser mapping solutions into their toolbox.
