How Drones Benefit Engineering for Transportation and Surveying
Drones in Engineering
We believe that the key to success in implementing drones for engineering in heavy industry and surveying is to have partnerships. That is why SkySkopes has developed relationships with companies such EAPC Industrial Services and Houston Engineering.
SkySkopes has partnered with EAPC Industrial Services to provide aerial laser scanning for industry.
Scans create 3D, virtual images or models that are far more accurate than manually building them through onsite, time consuming measurements, thereby reducing onsite time, access issues, travel time/costs, and potential change orders during construction.
These scans are also very valuable when original construction drawings are unavailable. The resulting models can even offer the ability to walk through a redesigned facility before it’s built. Visit EAPC Industrial Services for more information regarding 3D laser scanning.
SkySkopes is a proud partner of Houston Engineering to create lasting solutions in the areas of transportation, surveying, land and site development, urban planning, GIS, and web/mobile technology.
Houston Engineering has collaborated with SkySkopes on various projects to provide accurate ground control points for LiDAR and mapping flights. Precise ground control points are essential for tying the data to real coordinate systems. Visit Houston Engineering for more information regarding survey services.

Geographical Information System (GIS)
A geographic information system (GIS) allows users to visualize, analyze, and interpret data for better decision making, greater efficiency, improved communication, and enhanced management.
Better Decision Making
GIS is the go-to technology for making better decisions about location. Common examples include real estate site selection, route/corridor selection, evacuation planning, conservation, natural resource extraction, etc.
GIS-based maps and visualizations greatly assist in understanding situations and in storytelling. They are a type of language that improves communication between different teams, departments, disciplines, professional fields, organizations, and the public.
Typical implementations can result in a savings of 10 to 30 percent in operational expenses through reduction in fuel use and staff time, improved customer service, and more efficient scheduling.
Many organizations have a primary responsibility of maintaining authoritative records about the status and change of geography. GIS provides a strong framework for managing these types of records with full transaction support and reporting tools.
