Hi, I’m embarking on a change of career, going back to my roots as a geo surveyor (old school ‘level and theodolite’ guy) and I’m interested in progressing to Drone surveying. I plan to do a 2-day ground school training day and test, to get a licence from the Aviation Authority to fly in controlled airspace etc.
- As I am completely new to this, what should my next steps be?
- Is Pix4D suitable for small type geo surveys (i.e. a few acres, housing estates, etc.) or is it more focussed on large scale surveying ?
- Do you also need to establish ground control with Drones and Pix4D ?
- I’m not even sure if drone surveying will be suitable for what I need to do, for example can it do building facades ?
