China-based DJI and Israel-based Datumate have begun offering a drone, software and app package that the partners say fully automates and expedites site surveys.
Tailored for professional surveying jobs, the DJI-Datumate Site Survey Solution is a comprehensive package of imagery and mapping tools meant to help surveying, construction, inspection and infrastructure companies quickly generate a working model, site visualization, analytics and plan. The solution includes “Triple D” bundles of the DJI Drone, DatuFly tablet app for automated aerial photography, and DatuGram 3D photogrammetry software that converts aerial and ground images to geo-referenced 2D maps and 3D models.
“New drone regulations expedite the adoption of drones in a wide range of surveying related applications,” said Paul Xu, DJI’s director of enterprise solutions. “We believe that DJI-Datumate Site Survey Solutions offer a professional and cost-effective end-to-end solution for the surveying, infrastructure-mapping and inspection markets. ”
Datumate CEO Tal Meirzon added, “We are excited to partner with DJI to automate and digitize the entire field-to-plan process. Our mutual solution brings site visualization and analytics quickly to the office, keeping field and office work effortless and safe.”
The DJI-Datumate Site Survey Solution is available globally from the DJI online store, as well as through DJI and Datumate dealers.
