UAV (Drones) for Landfills
Landfills need to calculate remaining volume capacity on an annual basis and UAV technology is quickly proving it is the perfect fit. Recently, PDC Technical Services of Peoria, IL hired Cloudpoint Geographics to provided high-resolution imagery and digital elevation models for three (3) different landfill sites within central Illinois. The sites varied from 120 to 200 acres of variable terrain and surface features. Cloudpoint's professional staff was able to perform a quick turnaround on the project for the Client to meet their internal deadlines. The data was delivered in the Client's preferred format, AutoCAD Civil 3D for performing volumetric calculations, capacity analysis, and engineering design projects.
