Drone Documentation: The Next Level of Data Collection and Preservation
One of the newest technological advances being utilized by DJS Associates (FAA Licensed), in the architectural, preservation and forensic fields, is the use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), otherwise known as Unmanned Aerial Systems (UASs), or drones.
Drones/UAV/UASs can be utilized to carry cameras, video cameras and/or 3D laser scanners into areas not accessible by terrestrial equipment. The ability of drones/UAV/UASs to fly over an incident area and/or collect data from otherwise inaccessible areas due to their location or height is unprecedented. Drones/UAV/UASs are considered to be the “next level” of data collection and preservation.
