Remember who you wanted to become as a child?
Many of us dreamed of becoming pilots, cosmonauts, military, stewardesses, firemen, policemen. Sometimes it came to debate. And to be better !? Remember?
Thanks to our parents, teachers and Sergey Mikhalkov (the poem “What about you!”) For a good upbringing and an explanation of the importance of all professions!
In the dreams of adults more practicality, reality, reach. Mature people for the most part set themselves achievable goals, remembering the sincere simplicity and naivety of their childhood illusions.
We urge everyone: “Keep dreaming the same way as in childhood, sincerely, naively, cleanly! Do not limit yourself! The probability that you will achieve your goals is now much higher. You have become strong, you have the experience and knowledge! “
Our dreams come true. For several years, we have been studying the feasibility of using aerial photography technology from unmanned aerial vehicles to create cartographic material. Dreamed how it would be great to quickly get orthophotos, improving the quality of their work and reducing their cost price!
The main inconvenience in using UAV, in our opinion, is the need to obtain permits from government agencies. At the same time, we understand the need for state regulation of air traffic. Even at heights of up to 500 meters, especially on the territory of settlements – the life and health of people is the highest value
In 2016, we bought a relatively inexpensive quadrocopter DJI Inspire 1. We learned how to manage, admired the flying qualities of this drone. We got the first photos taken in the nadir from different heights. We learned to eliminate the distortion of the optical system and matrix of the ZENMUSE X3 camera. We estimated the quality and accuracy of the images. We survived the first incident, got injured – so we strongly recommend that everyone comply with safety regulations and legislation on the use of airspace!
Having received the first experience and positive results, we decided to purchase a professional aerophotogrammetric complex. They studied the market of manufacturers of unmanned aerial vehicles of near and far abroad. Analyzed two fundamentally different types of aircraft: a helicopter and an airplane.
The Geoscan 401 helicopter proved to be the most effective solution for the problems facing us. The claimed performance characteristics, cost and relatively accessible maintenance base had a significant impact when signing the supply contract with OOO Geoscann.
A group of our employees in February 2017 took courses in theoretical and practical training on the management of the Geoscan 401 Pro unmanned complex in St. Petersburg.
St. Petersburg met our employees with cloudy winter weather, weak wind and little snow. Photographs obtained during training flights on a special test range do not represent a large cartographic value. The artistic and documentary value, as well as the quality of some photos, you can evaluate yourself.
Now we are working on registering an unmanned aerial vehicle in the Civil Aviation Committee and obtaining permission for the first flight on the site of creating an experimental three-dimensional model of the city of Astana (Astana 3D).
