Using drones to calculate cut and fill volumes for takeoff reporting
When you’re calculating cut and fill on your project, even minor deviations in the survey data can turn into significant errors.
A drone survey is used to capture survey grade accurate 2D/3D digital data or as-build data of a site or project.
Instead of tedious manual reporting the Datumate cloud visualisation and analysis platform saves you substantial time and money by automating and streamlining the earthworks process.
Cut and fill analytics gives you the total amount of earth movements between dates or in comparison to design layers. This can be done over small or large areas producing a range a valuable reports and heat map that can be used by quantity surveyors, project managers, or any of the project team.
The platform can be used to evaluate topography changes, see if work is done according to plan, and take action where needed quickly.
