ADU 01287: Are there opportunities in the surveying world for DSP’s?

Today’s episode is brought to you by PROPS programs. Props is Drone U’s exclusive offering to give organizations the ability to distribute UAV training to pilots effectively and efficiently. PROPS allows the leader of a drone program, to assign the appropriate courses according to your program’s needs and timeframes. And perhaps more importantly, it allows you as the program leader to monitor the progress of each pilot within one convenient platform. Our PROPS program has a special course on a host of domains including mapping, public safety and our exclusive Don’t Crash courses.

Today’s show is about providing services to surveyors. Our question for today is from Jamie, who would like to know if its worth providing drone services to surveyors or if it is better to provide services to sites directly. Thank you for the question Jamie.

We address Jamie’s question by talking about the complexities involved in providing services to surveyors and why we believe it is not worth to offer services to surveyors. We discuss challenges in accuracy, GCP usage and the barriers in translating drone processes to valuable work for surveyors. We also discuss issues such as working for a surveyor and what services can pilots with surveying experience provide.
