UAV-Based Construction Monitoring Delivers Accurate Daily Counts

Dudek’s Mapping and Surveying team leverages more than 20 years of experience providing survey, permitting, and construction monitoring services. In 2019, we worked with First Solar to create a UAV-based construction monitoring and materials counting survey system. Data is collected using UAVs and analyzed with machine learning technology to provide material counts, before being provided

UAV Construction Monitoring

Dudek has mapped renewable energy sites utilizing UAV technology since 2016. With our large, distributed team of pilots we can support construction projects in every state. For international projects, we can train your pilots to fly over a construction site to collect data that will be used for the UAV construction monitoring system.

Faster Natural Disaster Area Mapping with Drones and Powerful Cloud Processing Tech

When a natural disaster strikes, emergency service personnel need to mobilize and deploy support quickly. But before that can happen, they need to understand the extent of the damage on the ground. And to do that, they need eyes in the sky. Dustin Gaessner, Dudek Flight Operations Lead was born and raised on Oahu. He

How Technology Has Changed Environmental Field Data Collection

Digital technology has transformed environemental field data collection. Digital methods allow data to be collected more efficiently, more accurately, in greater quantity and processed more quickly than ever before. For Dudek biologists, archaeologists, urban foresters, hydrologists, and other science and engineering professionals that manage projects involving fieldwork, applying technology is a constant challenge as it

Detailed Data Collection Streamlines Project Permitting

Accurate and thorough collection of geographic information system (GIS) datasets is integral to successful project review and permitting. Equally important is submitting datasets with ample detail so they can be easily understood, analyzed, and manipulated by project owners and regulators. Unintelligible data slows permitting Often, regulators receive datasets that make perfect sense to the data

Field Data Reporting Goes Mobile & Real-Time

When archeologists discover a new cultural resources artifact at a construction site, the discovery often doesn’t cause a problem. “Problems usually crop up post-discovery as a result of slow or incomplete communication to stakeholders about the discovery,” said Micah Hale, RPA, who leads Dudek’s cultural resources practice. (Watch video) “There are stringent cultural resource laws
