EARTHWORK AND PILES
Earthwork and Pile Estimations
Lay down a digital blanket
How can a drone estimate quantity?
Step one - We scan a site.
Step two - We create a digital blanket over the ground and all piles. It's called a mesh.
Step three - We digitally circle areas (piles, mounds, retention ponds, etc) on the mesh and slice them off with a defined cut plane (either a elevation or a design file surface).
Step four - Software calculates the cubic yards between the cut plane and the mesh.
Step five - We provide a report of our findings.
*In some states, we'll need to work with your surveyor.
EARTHWORK & PILE ESTIMATIONS
One 3D model tells you:
Topography / elevation
Slopes / grades
Cubic yards / quantities
Two models from different dates tell you more:
Cubic yards moved
High & Low Visual Estimation
Design vs. Actual. Fight!
When we create a digital surface model of your site, we can compare it to your design file. Why?
See variance in elevation from design to actual
Cubic yard variance in an area, or over the whole site
