They’re being used to share progress updates from the sky, manage earthworks, perform cut-and-fills, and much more. But, there’s also an emerging use case for drones within the civil engineering space: as designers move from 2D towards 3D design and BIM workflows, the reality capture data that drones provide is making a huge impact on their projects. In short: drones are the latest tool in the civil engineer’s workflow, and they’re changing the way the world gets built. To show how, we recently embarked on a project with Autodesk—working with their team of bridge design and reality capture specialists—to explore the impact that drones are having on infrastructure projects.
