Darren Wilkinson - Land Surveys - Surveying With sUAS- Beyond The Hype Darren Wilkinson - Land Surveys - Surveying With sUAS- Beyond The Hype Presentation Transcript

  • Surveying With sUAS - Beyond The Hype Surveying With sUAS- Beyond The Hype Regional Sustaining Partner
  • Session Overview Surveying with sUAS….. • The Hype! • Applications • Value • Beyond The Hype • Questions/ Discussion Surveying With sUAS- Beyond The Hype Regional Sustaining Partner
  • Hype n. extravagant or intensive publicity or promotion “Our UAV is capable of covering ground areas ranging from 1.5km2 - 10km2 (at 3cm - 30cm pixels) to provide results to as low as 5cm horizontal and vertical” Surveying With sUAS- Beyond The Hype Regional Sustaining Partner “…..complete, affordable surveying solution in your hands…..” “With 165 minutes endurance we flew 100km of pipeline ……..”
  • …a proliferation of Surveying platforms… Surveying With sUAS- Beyond The Hype Regional Sustaining Partner
  • …..and data processing solutions….. Surveying With sUAS- Beyond The Hype Regional Sustaining Partner
  • Resources Applications Produce survey quality 3D surface data and/or orthorectified imagery • Exploration & Evaluation • Well suited for brownfields, targeted deposits, re-establishment • Complements concurrent surveying and spatial activities • Supports DFS and BFS : • Orebody modelling • Infrastructure and extraction design considerations • Flood studies • EIS • Benchmark for reclamation and remediation Surveying With sUAS- Beyond The Hype Regional Sustaining Partner
  • Resources Applications • Mine Construction • Infrastructure planning and mapping • Civils/ earthworks reconciliation • Progress reporting Surveying With sUAS- Beyond The Hype Regional Sustaining Partner • Mine Production • ROM, stockpiles, waste dumps, pit mapping and volumes • Contractor reconciliation • Mine plans, asset and infrastructure mapping
  • Resources Applications • Environment & Safety • Encroachments • Slips, failures • Accident and emergency • Rehabilitation monitoring Surveying With sUAS- Beyond The Hype Regional Sustaining Partner
  • UAS Survey Value Surveyor Project Client Surveying With sUAS- Beyond The Hype Regional Sustaining Partner -tool in the surveyor’s tool box -frees up survey resource -2D, 3D, 4D, raster, vector, point cloud -incidental data capture -reduced machinery, weather exposure -permanent, complete record -reduced time & cost to obtain spatial data
  • Beyond The Hype 1. Surveying Expertise- Survey Data Quality and Integrity “A horse that can count to ten is a remarkable horse, not a remarkable mathematician”…….. Samuel Johnson- Writer Surveying With sUAS- Beyond The Hype Regional Sustaining Partner
  • Beyond The Hype 1. Surveying Expertise- Survey Data Quality and Integrity It’s a surveying/ mapping job- is UAV the right tool? • Need to understand project requirements and apply the best solution: • How is the data to be used? • Accuracy, precision? • Resolution? • Error budget? • Raw outputs? • Derived deliverables? • Timeliness of delivery? • Cost effectiveness? • Alternative method? • Who’s signing off? Surveying With sUAS- Beyond The Hype Regional Sustaining Partner
  • Beyond The Hype 2. Scrutiny • Compliance • UOC • RPC • VLOS/VMC • AA • ATC • Operational • RA • SHEWMS Surveying With sUAS- Beyond The Hype Regional Sustaining Partner
  • Beyond The Hype 3. Operating Environment Surveying With sUAS- Beyond The Hype Regional Sustaining Partner
  • Beyond The Hype 4. Accident Damage Surveying With sUAS- Beyond The Hype Regional Sustaining Partner
  • Beyond The Hype 5. Technology Evolution • UAV • Increased duration • Increased payload capacity • Improved flight, navigation performance • Sensors • Miniaturisation, resolution • Multiple band, lidar • Improved gimbals • Plug and play modules • RTK  Accelerated hardware obsolescence Surveying With sUAS- Beyond The Hype Regional Sustaining Partner
  • Beyond The Hype Use an Expert or Become an Expert • It’s a surveying job, not necessarily a flying job, be open minded • Is the data workflow going to give me the result I need? • Additional legal obligations • Is the UAS fit for purpose? • Can I stay current? It’s all about data integrity and quality- beware the “remarkable horse”! Surveying With sUAS- Beyond The Hype Regional Sustaining Partner
  • In Summary  Surveying with sUAS provides resources sector with valuable options  Complementary surveying system  Rapid and continuous hardware and software improvement  Early adopters and the market are still learning  The Hype will continue!
