January 3, 2018 - Drones and drone survey programs are gaining popularity in the quarry, mining and civil construction industries.

An unmanned aerial vehicle, or drone, is only one tool in the program. Quality data and an intuitive, accurate and robust processing platform are critical to achieving the desired outcomes. These components are the essential foundation for realizing the expected ROI. Software and hardware solutions alone will not guarantee success.

A well-defined change management plan with processes policies and metrics are important factors in the success of a drone surveying program.

At the inaugural Quarry Tech forum, taking place on Feb. 22, 2018 in Calgary, Alex Docherty, Channel Lead for Propeller Aero will discuss a drone program currently in place with a large North American construction company, including its aggregates operations.
