Leveraging UAS technology across surveying and engineering sectors is demanding. The expectations of accuracy and accountability require the best in expertise, methodology, and equipment. Using the latest UAS photogrammetric hardware and software, surveyors are now capturing 10s of millions of survey measurements on the ground, where they would previously have measured only hundreds. It is essential to have the best quality equipment, software, and workflows to ensure this data is accurate, robust and defensible for professional use.

Geosyntec is a leading consulting and engineering firm that works with private and public sector clients to address new ventures and complex problems involving our environment, natural resources, and civil infrastructure. UAS technology is becoming a key complement to the innovative technical solutions Geosyntec provide their clients. From initial site inspections to engineering design and analysis to improving construction quality assurance and project earthwork productivity assessment, leveraging in-house high accuracy UAS mapping capabilities is proving to be invaluable on their projects.

Setting up the right UAS photogrammetry mission framework is essential for success. This includes quality survey grade equipment and software. Geosyntec sees KlauPPK as an integral part in bringing this all together. This system includes a high accuracy PPK system, calibrated camera, and post-processing software to manage PPK processing with 3D leverage corrections, coordinate systems, and field QC checks. This combined with quality survey grade Trimble GNSS hardware and software, UgCS mission planning software, Pix4D photogrammetry processing, raw terrain post processing with Virtual Surveyor, and final analysis with Autodesk Civil 3D, all combine into a powerful toolkit for professional mapping applications.

Frontier Precision has played a big part in supporting Geosyntec to find the right choices in survey technology, including GNSS survey equipment from Trimble and Klau Geomatics. For decades, Frontier has helped surveyors and engineers with quality survey technology.
