Datumate Simplifies Civil Engineering Processes With Its Close-Range Photogrammetry Software

Listen to this article

Datumate helps Surveying and Construction companies reduce operational costs and save valuable time by shortening surveying and mapping processes. The combination of drones and datumate’s software expedites deliveries in surveying, construction and infrastructure projects. To find out more about their software we sat down with Liel Anisenko, Director of Marketing at Datumate:


Q: Could you explain the function and advantages of Datumate’s automated surveying tools?

A: Datumate’s professional photogrammetry solutions dramatically reduce Field-to-Plan duration, increase productivity and save operational costs while maintaining high level of accuracy. The solution consist of DatuFly™ app which generates a flight and image-taking plan for DJI drones and Datumate’s photogrammetry software that converts aerial and ground images to high-precision, geo-referenced 2D maps and 3D models with detailed site visualization and analytics.

DatuSurvey™ is a professional close range photogrammetry software developed by a group of professional land surveyors to simplify the traditional processes used in Construction and Surveying today.

There is a number of available photogrammetry solutions on the market, but DatuSurvey™ is the only solution designed to follow the traditional land surveying workflow, making the process intuitive and easy for the registered land surveyors.

Based on an image-plane technology, DatuSurvey™ generates high-precision outputs (2D models, 3D CAD models, maps etc) with 1-3 cm ( 0.006 ft) while other drone-based solutions reach 20-25 cm accuracy.

DatuSurvey™ typically reduces field work time by 70% and the office processing time by 30%. It enables surveying and construction companies save operational costs and complete more projects, while keeping their field crews safe.

Q: Can you give us more insights into Datumate’s professional Site Survey Solution?

A: Site Survey Solution is a package offered mutually by Datumate and DJI, world’s leading drone manufacturer.

Tailored for professional surveying jobs, the DJI-Datumate Site Survey Solution simplifies the surveying and mapping processes, while maintaining superior accuracy . The DJI-Datumate Site Survey Solution is a comprehensive and professional package of imagery and mapping tools that help surveying and construction companies quickly generate a working model, site visualization, analytics and plan. The solution includes bundles of DJI Phantom 4 Pro Drone, DatuFly™ drone app for an automated aerial photo shooting, as well as DatuSurvey™ photogrammetry software that converts aerial and ground images into high-precision, geo-referenced 2D maps and 3D models. The bundles are available on DJI’s website and at Datumate.

Q: Who is your ideal customer and why?

A: DatuSurvey™ solution is targeted to Surveying and Construction companies, who are looking to optimize the land survey processes, save operational costs and accomplish more projects. DatuSurvey™ Enterprise with its ability to support multiple large-scale projects, was designed to meet the needs of construction and surveying companies, and government agencies (e.g. DOTs); while DatuSurvey™ Professional is better suited for smaller Surveying firms and individual land surveyors.

DatuSite™ suite is ideal for earthmovers and construction site managers. It enables live stockpile volume calculation and efficient monitoring of the evolving construction sites.

DatuFly™ App was designed to photo shoot according to DatuSurvey™’s best practices, resulting in a greater mapping and modeling precision. Aside professional land surveyors, DatuFly™ drone app is actually suitable for anyone looking to map a specific area.

Q: What can we expect from Datumate in next four months?

A: There’s a lot going on at Datumate in terms of product developments. Datumate is going to launch DatuInspect™, a dedicated solution for automated cellular tower inspection. Cellular towers are regularly inspected for the equipment installed or to be installed on the tower, as well as the maintenance of the tower and inspection for identification of potential issues and irregularities. 630,000 cellular towers are inspected in the US only every year. The inspection requires tower climbing which always poses a potential safety risk. Datumate’s solution for cellular tower inspection enables digital transformation and automation of the tower inspection process from flight planning, through photo shooting to geo-referencing and 3D models creation. Eliminating the need for tower climbing, DatuFly™ app runs a quick and safe photoshoot of the site, capturing all of the tower objects including antennas elements, as well as those that can’t be reached with the traditional tower inspection method. From photo shooting to engineer’s analysis – DatuInspect™ processes the images, generates precise 3D models and runs detailed comparative inspection reports, reducing field and office time by more than 50%. DatuInspect™ optimizes budgeting and scheduling of the inspections and helps avoid unrepairable conditions and unnecessary maintenance costs.
