SimActive Software Used with Drones for Monitoring Construction in Texas

by | Feb 23, 2021

Montreal, Canada, February 23rd, 2021 “ SimActive Inc., a world-leading developer of photogrammetry software, announces the use of its Correlator3D product by Chasco Constructors in Texas for monitoring construction. The project was performed by the Virtual Design Construction (VDC) group for Round Rock Public Safety over a land area of more than 50 acres.

Using SimActive software, Chasco mapped and modeled the site every step of the way from initial grading, through to final landscaping.  The site was flown with drones bi-weekly throughout the design process over a period of one year. 

Drones are a real game-changer as they allow us to quickly create accurate, high-resolution maps, reports, and 3D models for immediate analysis, said Michael Lambert VDC Manager at Chasco. SimActive was our choice for processing these image datasets, due to the efficiency of the design interface and the speed in which these could be processed.
