Surveying & Mapping (2D/3D)

SCHNELL is India’s leading Drone-based service provider for Surveying & Mapping. SCHNELL is equipped with excellent drone infrastructure & team of highly skilled Pilots. The infrastructure includes micro category survey-grade drones equipped with an advanced mapping payload and state-of-the-art PPK Module. With flight time of 40 Minutes & operational range of 4 Km, this UAV covers about 1 Sq Km in a single flight at 120 m AGL & offers category-defying performance even in the most demanding conditions. The combination of mapping payload with PPK module delivers accuracy( that has never been seen before in this class. The infrastructure also includes small category survey-grade drones with an advanced mapping payload and state-of-the-art PPK Module. With flight time over 60 Minutes & operational range of 5 Km, this UAV covers about 2 Sq Km in a single flight at 120 m AGL

While surveying with drones, images of the ground are taken from multiple vantage points. These images are processed using Image Processing Software for generation of ORI (Ortho rectified imagery), DEM (Digital Elevation Model) & DTM (Digital Terrain Model)

Services or Outputs provided by Drone Mapping and their Usages:

  1. Orthomosaic maps- This is High Resolution Imagery which can be used for Digitization of Point, Line and/or Polygon features. It is also used in Legal proceeding & Court cases, It can be used for carrying out various kind of inspections in the specific areas such as encroachments, flooded regions or even deforested areas.
  2. 3D point cloud- Such a point cloud can be used for generation of 3D textured models (City, Building or any object) & generation of contours. Classification of Points can be done using 3D Point cloud.
  3. Digital surface models (DSM), Digital Elevation Model (DEM), Digital Terrain Model (DTM) – These are used to create contours. It can be used to calculate Cut & fill Volumes specifically at the mining sites. Path Profile can be generated using this kind of data.
  4. Contour Maps: This proves to be useful for the selection of sites, finding general slopes of area, to determine the catchment area of a drainage basin, or to find intervisibility between two or more stations, mostly used by civil engineers in the construction of roads, highways, railway lines, water pipelines, etc.

SCHNELL team is actively involved in the SVAMITVA project which intends to cover about 6,60,000 villages across all the states in India using Drones.

SVAMITVA (Survey of Villages Abadi and Mapping with Improvised Technology in Village Areas) is a Central Sector flagship Scheme initiated by the Ministry of Panchayati Raj. It aims to give an integrated property validation solution for rural India and empowers them with the records of right to their residential properties.  SCHNELL team has acquired data for more than 25000 Acres across 500 villages in Uttar Pradesh & Gujarat States.
