We demonstrated to noon Amana how the DJI M300 RTK enables easy data collection without the hazards of terrain, dust, or complex environments through accurate aerial surveys.

Thus, the Matrice 300 RTK eliminates inefficiencies and hazards and gives rise to surveying excellence.

Traditional surveying methods necessitate meticulous measurement, preparation, and planning, whereas drones can gather all of this information in a much shorter amount of time.

By enabling faster survey turnaround times, surveys can be conducted, and data delivered more cost-effectively. Drone data can be displayed in a variety of ways, making it useful in a wide range of fields. Orthomosaic, thermal, and multispectral maps, as well as point clouds and 3D reality captures.

One of the challenges of surveying and mapping in the desert is the sand. Conducting surveys and obtaining accurate results can be difficult in the desert; the sand acts as one big homogeneous surface, and as a result, you don’t get enough tie-points to generate dense point clouds.

This is when the 45-megapixel full-frame sensor comes in. The Zenmuse P1, when paired with the M-300 RTK, is a game-changer for aerial surveys. The P1’s sensor is powerful enough to capture texture even when the subject is uniform and smooth desert sand.

This POC with noon Amana demonstrates how a robust platform like the M300 RTK can significantly improve surveying and mapping workflow. Surveying this area with a TLS (Terrestrial Laser Scanner) would be 10 times slower while yielding inferior data.

If you’re looking to conduct surveys in challenging areas, you’d be hard-pressed to find a more cost-effective solution than the DJI M300 RTK and Zenmuse P1.
